Yarmouk might have a specific political entity (the Palestinian Authority) and a specific U.N. agency (UNRWA) responsible for conditions there, but these haven't done the thousands of people who remain in the camp any good.The tragedy of Yarmouk is a potent symbol of the international community's resounding failure to deal with the humanitarian aspect of the Syria crisis, but more importantly, people should remember that the failure to solve the political aspect is responsible for all of the horrific suffering we see today.
