On Sunday, Syrian government warplanes bombed Yarmouk refugee camp and the adjacent al-Hajar al-Aswad neighborhood in Southern Damascus, dozens of times.

Local activists reported that since Sunday at dawn, 55 airstrikes hit al-Yarmouk camp and the al-Hajar al-Aswad neighborhood as a part of an intensified military campaign in the area amidst Russian aerial support and attempts to advance on the ground.

The Syrian government forces bombed al-Yarmouk camp using explosive hoses, 25 surface-to-surface rockets, and 11 explosive barrels.

Activists and medics in the camp called for a truce to evacuate civilians, treat the injured, and extract those trapped beneath the rubble. The activists and medics added that they are unable to count the victims due to intense bombings and people still trapped beneath the rubble.

Earlier, activists reported that the military escalation followed the failure of Russian-brokered negotiations between the Syrian government and the Islamic State (ISIS) about ISIS' evacuation from the Badiyaa region, also known as the Syrian steppe, in southeastern Syria. The negotiations also called for the relocation of Hayat Tahrir al-Sham fighters from al-Yarmouk camp to Idlib in Northern Syria.

The Syrian government forces have launched a military campaign against the Damascus neighborhoods of al-Qadam, al-Tadamoun, and al-Hajar al-Aswad, in addition to al-Yarmouk camp. The government forces relocated loyalist militias from the outskirts of Douma, including the National Defense, the Arab National Guards, the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, the General leadership, and the Palestinian Guard, to participate in the campaign.
