A group of 14 Palestinian factions said Thursday they backed a joint military operation with the Syrian government to expel Islamic State group jihadists from the Yarmuk camp in southern Damascus.

The factions support "a security solution that will be carried out in partnership with the Syrian state and will have as its priority maintaining the security of citizens," said Palestine Liberation Organisation official Ahmed Majdalani.
