'We want to go out!': 18,000 starving inside Syrian refugee camp

Mass starvation, disease and hopelessness abound in the Yarmouk Palestinian refugee camp in Damascus. Although a UN agency has managed to make its first food aid delivery to the rebel-held camp in weeks, many people are on the brink of starvation. The camp is located on the edge of the territory the Syrian government considers under its control, in a southern Damascus neighborhood, just five miles away from the capital's center. Rebel forces have been holding the camp for more than a year and the army started a siege in June. Nothing and no one comes in or out, as 18,000 people continue to be kept in a state of limbo. Some of the Palestinian refugees living in the camp have been there for decades, victims of the Palestinian people's conflict with Israel. Now they are hoping desperately for a resolution to this conflict, in Syria. http:/ ctualidad.rt.com/
