Damascus-based Palestinian political groups denied on Monday accusations that some Palestinians were behind recent unrest in Syria.

In a statement, the groups warned of "attempts of division between Syria and the Palestinian factions."

Khaled Abdul Majeed, secretary of the national follow-up committee and the Palestinian forces coalition, said in the statement that "Syria will overcome the current crisis and will be able to foil external attempts to undermine its national stability. "

The Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, a left wing Palestinian faction, asserted in the statement that "Palestinian refugees in Syria enjoy full freedom."

Syria has been in unrest for more than a week due to anti- government demonstrations broke up in the southern province of Daraa. The protest has spread to several other Syrian cities, leading to dozens of protesters and policemen killed.

The ruling Baath party of Syria, which ruled the country for decades, has announced a package of reforms, including the increase of salary and release of political detainees.
