ISIS May Leave Yarmouk, but Siege will Not End

December 30th, 2015

Interview 12/30/2015 with Nidal Bitari who is in Washington DC.  We talk about the reports of an evacuation of some fighters and families from the Yarmouk refugee camp in Damascus, Syria, the halt in the evacuation and what will happen if ISIS leaves. Shocking story of a community that was once 800,000 Palestinians and Syrians. All of Yarmouk is about 2 square kilometers in area about 2/3 the size of Manhattan's Central Park.

It has been under siege by Assad forces now for years. Bitari works at People Demand Change Interviewer: Stanley Heller
