Palestinian Refugee Arrested by Lebanese Security Forces

Palestinian refugee from Syria Abdullah Hasan Atiyeh, born in 1972, was arrested by the Lebanese security forces on April 17. The reasons for his detention remain ambivalent.

Abdullah fled the embattled Yarmouk Camp in war-torn Syria to AlMiya wa Miyah Camp, south of Lebanon.

His family has appealed to the Palestine Embassy and concerned institutions in Lebanon to push for his release, saying Abdullah illegally entered Lebanon in the hunt for a safe shelter but got his legal status worked out by local authorities shortly after. The family added that he regularly renews his visa every six months.

Abdullah was reportedly arrested one day after he showed up at local police stations to renew his stay.

Nearly 28,000 Palestinians from Syria have been enduring a volatile legal status in Lebanon as the Lebanese authorities categorize them as tourists rather than asylum seekers. Lack of access to the local labor market and the absence of relief assistance have made the situation far worse for the Palestinians who fled Syria to Lebanon.
