More than 400 Palestinians have been killed since the beginning of the fighting between the Syrian army and anti-government forces, Zakariya al-Agha, a senior PLO official, announced Thursday.

The announcement came as Palestinian refugees who fled the fighting in Syria complained that the Palestinian Authority was doing nothing to assist them. Nearly 500,000 Palestinians live in a number of refugee camps in Syria.

PA leaders have accused Ahmed Jibril's Popular Front front for the Liberation of Palestine - General Command of dragging the Palestinians into the fighting in Syria. Jibril's group has long been supportive of the Syrian regime and its members are said to be fighting alongside the Syrian army.

Agha said that all the 400 victims were killed in the Yarmouk refugee camp near Damascus.
