Nearly 60% of the Palestinian people are displaced and in asylum, said Secretary General of the Democratic Front for the Liberation of Palestine (DFLP) Nayef Hawatmeh.

All factions of the DFLP believe in the need in neutralizing refugee camps in Syria to keep them away from the ongoing bloody struggle in the country, Hawatmeh told MENA on Sunday.

"When a refugee camp gets destroyed, it does not get rebuilt," he regretted, noting that these camps are a symbol of the right to return to their homeland.

The Yarmouk camp in Syria has been targeted over the past five years by a series of bloody military acts by armed political Islamist powers and has been besieged by regime forces, he summed up.

The camp used to accommodate from 180,000 to 200,000 refugees before the crisis started in Syria against 12,000 at present, he pointed out.

He called for reaching a solution to the Syrian crisis to ease the suffering of the Syrian people.
