Abbas urges Assad to 'spare Palestinians in Syria' after Assad's jets bomb Palestinian "refugee camp", killing 25

They were taking shelter in a mosque. And every Muslims knows that mosques are where Muslims store weapons.
(JPost) BEIRUT - Syrian fighter jets rocketed the Palestinian Yarmouk camp in Damascus on Sunday, killing at least 25 people sheltering in a mosque in an area where Syrian rebels have been trying to advance on the capital, opposition activists said.

They said the deaths resulted from a rocket hitting a mosque in the camp, to which refugees have fled from other fighting in nearby suburbs of Damascus. It was the first reported aerial attack on the camp since the revolt against Syrian President Bashar Assad erupted last year.

Yarmouk, in southern Damascus, is part of an arc sweeping from the east to southwest of the Syrian capital where Assad's forces have been trying for several weeks to push back rebels from the gates of his power base.

A video posted on Youtube shows bodies and body parts scattered on the stairs of what appears to be the mosque. [...]

The Palestinian Authority condemned the Syrian fighter jet attack on the Palestinian Yarmouk refugee camp in Damascus on Sunday, Palestinian news agency Ma'an reported.

According to Ma'an, senior PLO official Yasser Abed Rabbo told Reuters the PA hold Syrian President Bashar Assad and his regime "responsible for this crime," adding that the attack shows the regime knows "no limits in its approach to criminal murder and destruction."

Ynet reports that Abbas "further urged the international community to protect Palestinians in Syria."

But... as long as Arabs are being killed by other Arabs, it's all good, nobody cares. Seriously, just watch the reaction of the "international community".

P.S.: Here's Abbas' chance to take Syria to the ICC for war crimes. Let's see what type of character he has.
