UNRWA is increasingly alarmed about the safety of civilians in Yarmouk, amid reports overnight of armed clashes, the use of heavy weapons and air strikes. Civilians in the camp went through a night of extreme trauma and distress.

UNRWA is closely monitoring reports of civilian fatalities and casualties.
