An activist video posted online after the attack on Yarmouk shows scattered glass, debris and twisted metal on a narrow street. Gravely injured people are seen lying on the street in pools of blood.
The videos appear consistent with AP’s reporting from the area.
In Ramallah, Palestinian officials blasted the Syrian government for the attack.
‘‘We condemn in the strongest terms the crime of Assad’s regime in Yarmouk refugee camp, and call on all international parties, including the states that still back this regime, to act immediately and stop these massacres against Syrians and Palestinians in Syria,’’ PLO official Yasser Abed Rabbo told the AP.
Anwar Rajja, a Damascus-based spokesman for the PFLP-GC told the AP that his group is fighting ‘‘terrorists,’’ who have come to the camp from the front lines in the suburbs of Damascus. The Syrian regime and state media refer to the rebels as terrorists.
Associated Press writer Maamoun Youssef in Cairo, Mohammed Daraghmeh in Ramallah, West Bank, and Albert Aji in Damascus, Syria, contributed to this report.
