Lebanese Security Forces Release Palestinian Refugee after 16 Days

Palestinian refugee from Syria Abdullah Hasan Atiyeh, born in 1972, was released from a Lebanese detention center, 16 days after he had been detained in Sidon.

Abdullah, who was displaced from Yarmouk Camp to AlMiyah wa Miyah camp, south of Lebanon, was arrested on April 17, over name resemblance.

His family kept appealing 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.

Meanwhile, sources close to the General Authority for Palestinian Arab Refugees in Syria said the Authority has made serious efforts in partnership with UNRWA to change its distribution plan and expand the list of concerned families.

The efforts culminated in agreements to hand over 24,000 Syrian Pounds to members of families whose breadwinner is a woman, elderly person aged 60 and above, a person with disability, or a minor (below 18). The other families will receive 16,000 Syrian Pounds per every single member during the holy Ramadan month.

Sometime earlier, URNWA in Syria said it will opt for urgent measures to curtail in-kind and cash aids allotted to the Palestinians of Syria.

A serious funding crunch has been wrought on UNRWA by the US decision to cut aids for Palestine refugees, forcing the agency to operate with a large shortfall over the past few months.
