Most of the Syrian opposition fighters in the Palestinian Yarmuk camp in southern Damascus have now withdrawn, a Palestinian official told AFP on Sunday.
Anwar Abdel Hadi, an official with the Palestine Liberation Organisation, said "most of the gunmen have pulled out of the camp" after an agreement with Palestinian factions in Yarmuk.
"Palestinian fighters have deployed to the outskirts of the camp to prevent the entry of any non-Palestinian gunmen," Abdel Hadi added.
Yarmuk camp was once home to some 150,000 Palestinians, as well as Syrian residents.
