Dying of starvation at Yarmouk camp

ISTANBUL 

Anadolu Agency (AA) has revealed photographs of five Palestinians who died of hunger at Yarmouk Refugee Camp in Syria. 

The body of Palestinian man, identified as Mohamed Said Ibrahimi Carcugh, who died of hunger on Monday, is being carried on a pushcart, revealing the tragedy of conditions at the camp.

The word "ambulance" on the Palestine's flag in front of the pushcart is a heartbreaking symbol of the camp's inadequate aid. 

The photographs show that the bodies of those who lost their lives are laid out on stretchers in the camp's square while funeral prayers are performed.

Syrian Revolution General Coalition (SRGC) confirmed in a statement that 82 Palestinian refugees died of hunger at the camp in a year.
