Fourteen people were reportedly killed and 43 injured Monday after violence erupted in a Palestinian refugee camp in Syria, Palestinian news agency WAFA reported.

The violence broke out in the Yarmouk refugee camp in Damascus when thousands of refugees attacked  the headquarters of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine – General Commend (PFLP-GC) after a funeral was held for Palestinians killed by IDF fire during 'Naksa' Day clashes earlier this week.

The mourners at the funeral accused the PFLP leadership of sending their "sons" to the border clashes. WAFA cited refugee camp sources as saying that 43 people were seriously injured in the confrontation.
