On International Day of Peace: Palestinians of Syria Enduring Tragic Situation

Palestinian refugees have gone through a dreadful psycho-physical situation all the way through Syria’s seven-year warfare. Heavy onslaughts by the Syrian and Russian forces caused heavy damage to over 75% of civilian homes and structures in Palestinian refugee camps, namely Yarmouk, Daraa, AlSabina, and Handarat. At least 1,198 Palestinians were killed, as a result.

A tough blockade imposed on Yarmouk and Daraa by Syria’s pro-government forces led to an acute dearth in water and medicine. At least 205 Palestinians, mostly children and elderly civilians, were pronounced dead due to undernourishment and medical neglect.

At the same time, thousands of Palestinians have been targeted in abduction sweeps launched by the warring parties. AGPS documented the incarceration of 1,695 Palestinians and the death of 557 others under torture in Syrian government jails.

Scores of Palestinian refugees have also been driven out of their homes and sought shelter in over-crammed makeshift camps, including the poorly-equipped Deir Ballout Camp, north of Syria.

50 Palestinians died, meanwhile, onboard migrant boats bound for Europe.

The situation has gone far worse due to the fragile legal status of the Palestinians of Syria. Holders of Palestinian-Syrian travel documents are banned from entering neighboring and European countries. Those who manage to reach such territories as Jordan, Lebanon, and Egypt are often subjected to mistreatment and refoulement.

Thousands of Palestinian children have also been denied the right to education, forcing hundreds of them to drop out of school and fetch low-paid jobs to assist their impoverished families.

As many as 3,874 Palestinians from Syria died of war-related incidents during the seven-year conflict. 314 others have gone missing.
