YARMOUK: understanding the situation

Given the immense amount of lies and war-mongering prevalent not only in the corporate media/MSM but also amongst Palestine supporters who either unknowingly have got the story of Yarmouk wrong or, worse, are collaborating with the war-mongerers against Syria, and thus against Palestine… I’ve collated some important articles for anyone who is genuinely interested in understanding what is happening in the Yarmouk district of Damascus and how this came to be. Additionally, one excellent investigative article details the situation of Palestinians in Syria and their involvement or not in the “crisis” (read: imperialist-zionist-fat gulf war against Syria).
