Number of Displaced Palestinian Children Taking Up Smoking in Syria Goes Up

Scores of Palestinian children have been spotted taking up cigarettes and hookah as a means to escape the deadly scenes of violence, bloodshed, and dislocation. Many Palestinian children have dropped out of school as a result of the violent warfare.

In live photos circulated on social media networks, Palestinian children appear to be sitting in cafés while taking up cigarettes and hookah.

The bloody warfare in Syria has had traumatic fallouts on Palestinian refugee children in and outside of the Syrian territories.

Post-traumatic stress disorders, mental psychosis, sleeplessness, nightmares, eating disorders, and intense fear have all been among the symptoms with which Palestinian children have been diagnosed after they lost their homes, have had their parents killed in the war, underwent limb amputation, and witnessed daily scenes of death and destruction.

AGPS calls on all international institutions and NGOs, namely UNICEF and UNRWA, to take serious measures in order to provide Palestinian children with the physical and moral protection quite urgently needed at such turbulent times.

Palestinian children from Syria who fled with their parents to neighboring countries have also faced severe psychological breakdowns owing to the perpetual state of dislodgement, dispossession, and homelessness they have been facing.
