Palestinian fighters clashed with ISIS militants in the Yarmouk neighborhood of Damascus Monday as a UNRWA official described the situation in the embattled camp as "beyond inhumane".The fighting began Wednesday after ISIS muscled into the camp, marking the extremists' deepest foray yet into Damascus.Both Dimashqi and the Observatory said Syrian government aircraft have been shelling the camp and dropping barrel bombs since Sunday.The fighting inside the camp has largely pitted ISIS jihadis against Aknaf Beit al-Maqdis, a Palestinian faction opposed to Syrian President Bashar Assad. Nusra said in a statement it is taking a neutral stance in the camp.Kawar said the council expressed deep concern over the "grave situation" for the inhabitants of the camp and demanded safe passage for the evacuation of civilians.
