Number of Palestinians from Syria in Gaza Goes Down to 400

Member of the Follow-Up Committee of Palestinians from Syria in Gaza, Omar Odeh, said the number of Palestinian refugees who returned to the besieged Gaza Strip from war-torn Syria until mid-June is estimated at 400 (150 families), down from 1,000 refugees (360 families).

Recently, 20 Palestinian families from Syria left Gaza on way to Switzerland, Germany, and Sweden to reunite with their families, Odeh told AGPS.

The decrease has also been attributed to the dire socio-economic conditions wrought by Israel’s 12-year-long blockade on the coastal enclave.

Civilians continue to launch cries for help over the high rates of unemployment, lack of financial resources, and movement crackdowns, which they said have made life quite unbearable in Gaza.

The offensives launched by the Israeli military on Gaza have turned the enclave into a hell on earth as most families have lost their sources of incomes, homes, and property. The lack of relief assistance has added bad to worse.
