Nearly one week after a ceasefire was announced between the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine-General Command (PFLP-GC) and the Al-Qaeda linked “Al-Nusra Front” (Jabhat Al-Nusra), firefights resumed on 30th St. following a dispute over the latter’s blockade of supplies entering the Yarmouk Camp District.

The groups fighting in the Yarmouk Camp have had numerous ceasefire agreements in which both parties were required to adhere to a list of guidelines that would allow for civilian aid to enter the district; however, the constant violence coalesced with the dilapidated state of the residential areas has only furthered the need for humanitarian assistance.

Earlier this week, representatives from the United Nations (U.N.) attempted to deliver aid to the civilians inside the Yarmouk Camp District, but as soon as their escorts from the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) approached an Al-Nusra Front checkpoint, the militants opened fire – this was captured on film.

Unable to deliver the supplies this week, the U.N aid workers have had to rely on these brief ceasefires to bring in food, medicine, water, and et al. Unfortunately, the U.N. aid workers were not able to deliver supplies to the civilians this week due to the reemergence of bloodshed.
