For the first time in the Syrian conflict the Palestinian refugee camp of Yarmouk in southern Damascus has been attacked from the air.

A mosque in the camp that was sheltering some 600 refugees from neighbouring districts was hit by at least one rocket, and there are reports of many casualties.

Yarmouk is a stronghold of the pro-Assad Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, which has been fighting the rebels, who have themselves had many Palestinians fighting alongside them.

Yesterday it was reported the PFLP military commander Ahmed Jibril had left the camp with his son for Tartous, a stronghold of Bashar al-Assad’s Alawite minority.
