A handout picture released by the Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA) on April 7, 2015, shows Syrian Deputy Foreign Minister Faisal Meqdad (C-R) meeting in the capital Damascus with a delegation from the Palestine Liberation Organisation (PLO) headed by Ahmad Majdalani (C-L). Syria said it is ready to offer Palestinians its firepower to support their battle with the Islamic State group in the Yarmuk refugee camp devastated by clashes and aerial attacks. The deteriorating humanitarian situation in the Yarmuk camp pushed the UN Security Council to demand greater access to residents trapped between the encroaching IS jihadists and besieging government forces.
