18 Palestinian Families from Syria at Greece-Based Refugee Camp Launch Cry for Help

Palestinian refugees from Syria taking shelter at Thermopolis camp in Greece have sounded distress signals over the exacerbated humanitarian conditions they have been subjected to.

In statements emailed to AGPS, the refugees said they have been enduring medical neglect and poor hygiene, along with the lack of relief assistance and the propagation of poisonous reptiles in the makeshift tents they have been locked up in.

The refugees have also railed against the socio-linguistic obstacles they have been facing owing to the absence of translators in the camp, adding that the camp’s sole NGO was kicked out by the director, whom they said also cut off the power generator.

In response, the migrants took out to the street to speak up for their rights, before police showed up and ordered them to backtrack. Two children were reportedly injured in the clashes.

Some 400 Palestinian refugees from Syria have been stranded in makeshift tents and under-equipped halls on Greek islands.

AGPS has kept record of the death of dozens of refugees onboard Greece-bound ships. Several others have been arrested by Turkish coast guards.
