The Palestinian Red Crescent Society (PRCS) has denounced a missile attack on one of its hospitals in Syria's Yarmouk refugee camp, where several members of its voluntary staff were killed.

The society censured the targeting of its medical staff during the ongoing conflict in Yarmouk, which killed seven staff members, including senior Hamas leader Yehya Horani late in March, and wounded dozens of others since the start of the conflict, the Palestinian news agency, Wafa, reported.

Following attacks by Takfiri terrorists who are now in control of parts of the Palestinian refugee camp near Damascus, hundreds of families were evacuated.

ISIL militants were in control of the camp until 2014, when a deal with the Syrian government saw the group withdraw. The Syrian army has since then besieged the camp as it has turned into a major bastion for spreading anti-government militancy.

The 15-member council urged protection for thousands of refugees in the camp, which was stormed by the ISIL on April 1. The militants apparently launched the attack in tandem with rivals from the al-Qaeda-linked al-Nusra Front.
