DAMASCUS (AFP) - Militants from the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) group seized control of most of the Yarmuk Palestinian refugee camp in southern Damascus Wednesday, a local Palestinian official said.
"Fighters from IS launched an assault this morning on Yarmuk and they took over the majority of the camp," said Anwar Abdel Hadi, director of political affairs for the Palestine Liberation Organisation in Damascus, referring to an alternative name to ISIS.
Fighting was continuing inside the camp, he said.
The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, a Britain-based monitoring group, said ISIS was in control of a "large part" of the camp after fighting with Palestinian groups also opposed to President Bashar al-Assad's regime.

Why must the US get involved? The Islamic nations need to sort their own people out or suffer a worldwide backlash against Islam. It's that simple. They have the resources and power to put a stop to ISIS but they are secretly enjoying the show.
