AGPS: Health Situation of Palestinian Refugees Taking Turn for Worse in War-Torn Syria

The health situation of Palestinian refugees in Syria has remarkably exacerbated as a result of the unabated tensions rocking the Syrian territories since March 2011.

In a report issued in April 2018, on the occasion of the International Health Day, AGPS put the spotlight on the health situation in Palestinian refugee camps in the war-ragged Syrian territories.

According to the report, daily scenes of bloodshed and destruction led to deteriorating conditions. The study kept record of serious violations against medics, paramedics, and ambulances by the different warring parties in Syria. Wounded civilians, expectant woman, elderly people, and hundreds of humanitarian cases have faced severe difficulties trying to reach hospitals and medical centers.

At the same time, heavy damage has been wrought on medical equipment in Palestinian refugee camps and shelters as a result of the deadly onslaughts, burglary attacks, and property-theft assaults carried out against hospitals, clinics, and pharmacies.

AGPS documented flagrant violations against wounded civilians and medical crews. These include extra-judicial killing, abduction, crackdowns, movement restrictions, and torture in jail.

Lists of dozens of medics and paramedics who have been killed, detained, forcibly disappeared, or tortured to death in Syria figure in AGPS’ archives.

AGPS reiterates its calls to the Syrian government and all other concerned parties to protect medics and paramedics carrying out humanitarian missions in tension-stricken zones.
