U.N. chief Ban Ki-moon called Thursday for action to prevent a massacre in the Yarmouk neighborhood of Damascus after fighters from ISIS overran much of it, as 14 Palestinian factions meeting in the Syrian capital endorsed a joint military operation with government forces against the jihadis.Some 18,000 people are trapped in Yarmouk, which ISIS entered on April 1 and where it is battling Palestinians and Syrian rebels, and coming under increased regime shelling.It was unclear if Aknaf Beit al-Maqdis – the key group battling ISIS inside Yarmouk – would agree to fight alongside government forces.The Syrian government expelled three U.N. aid workers at the end of February and days later Syrian rebels rejected de Mistura's plan, saying it would only benefit the Syrian government.
