(Middle East Eye) – On Sunday, 4 October, two barrel bombs were dropped on a school run by the United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) for Palestinian refugees in the besieged Yarmouk camp in southern Damascus by a Syrian government helicopter.“Four other barrels were dropped on different inhabited areas of the camp. As usual we heard the helicopter’s sounds while flying in the sky, and the sound when the barrels collided with its targets,” Ayman, an activist in Yarmouk told Middle East Eye. Ayman added: “Thank God, losses were limited to material things and no casualties were reported. Just a few metres away from the school, there are three families living in one building. It was possible a massacre could have occurred.”
