Palestinian president Mahmud Abbas looks on during an opening ceremony of the "Istiqlal" (independence) garden in the West Bank city of Ramallah on April 5, 2015. In his speech Abbas called for "a solution to protect" the 18,000 Palestinian refugees still trapped in the Yarmouk camp, south of Damascus, besieged by the Syrian regime and almost entirely in the hands of jihadists.
