The Palestinian leadership has rejected the idea of joining the conflict in Syria's Yarmouk camp, apparently ruling out involvement in a joint military operation to expel ISIS.It came just hours after Ahmed Majdalani, a senior PLO official who is currently in Damascus for talks, said 14 Palestinian factions backed the idea of a joint military operation with the Syrian army to expel the ISIS jihadis from the camp where more than 15,000 people, mostly Palestinian refugees, are trapped.Once home to some 160,000 Syrian and Palestinian residents, Yarmouk has been devastated by violence since late 2012, with about 18,000 people left in the camp.
