An Amnesty International report has said that the civilians in Syria are being treated like 'pawns in a deadly game'.
Philip Luther, Amnesty's Middle East and North Africa Programme director, said: “Civilians of Yarmouk are being treated like pawns in a deadly game in which they have no control.”
The report highlights that government forces and their allies have repeatedly carried out attacks, including air raids and shelling with heavy weapons, on civilian buildings such as schools, hospitals and a mosque in Yarmouk.
