Palestinian Students Disappointed over “Degrading Treatment” at Dubai Arab Reading Challenge

Five Palestinian students enrolled at UNRWA-run schools, among them four students who were displaced from Syria to Lebanon, have been nominated among the top 10 contestants for the Lebanon team in the 2019 Arab Reading Challenge staged in Dubai in its fourth edition.

The participants expressed their deep disappointment over what they dubbed an “inhuman treatment” they faced during the celebration and the arbitrary travel ban slapped against them to prevent them from attending the wrap-up ceremony in Dubai on account that they are non-Lebanese nationals.

The students and their families also slammed the Lebanese committee for their “racist reaction” as they asked them to leave the hall after they handed them over certificates of appreciation and medals before the start of the main celebration. The committee further updated them on the travel ban which they said was issued as the students were Palestinian refugees rather than Lebanese citizens. The committee added that a sum of $100 donated by UNICEF will be given to the Palestinian students while the Lebanese contestants will receive $1,000.
