London - Conditions are set to get worse for the remaining Palestinian refugees in Yarmouk following the takeover of large parts of the camp by ISIS militants. The besieged refugee camp on the outskirts of Damascus, which was once home to 160,000 Palestinians, currently has about 18,000 residents trapped, with limited access to water collected from wells and food, and no electricity.
