An official from the Palestinian party Fatah was murdered in the Yarmouk refugee camp south of Damascus Tuesday, local activists said. They added that Abu Ahmad Tayrawieh was shot at the door of his home by a masked gunman. 

The Fatah movement has sought to avoid involvement in the war between the regime and rebel and jihadi groups. Saturday, Yarmouk saw the murder of Abu al-Abed Arisha, who was shot to death in the camp by two masked gunmen. Arisha was responsible for coordinating the delivery of relief supplies into the camp, activists said, and had good ties with both sides to the conflict.
