Refugees Seeking Shelter in Greek Island Launch Cry for Help

ِِِA number of Palestinian and Syrian families who have sought refuge in the Greek island of Kos took to the streets on Wednesday, June 19, urging the Greek government to improve their living conditions and grant them legal visas and travel permits.

The refugees denounced the absence of vital services, including health care, housing, relief assistance, and power and water.

They further called on the international human rights organizations to take urgent action in response to their appeals.

Some 210 Palestinians from Syria are taking shelter in Kos island, where they have been grappling with dire socio-economic conditions.

Palestinian refugees from Syria continue to risk their lives onboard the “death boats” to Greece, rummaging around for a momentary respite from the daily scenes of bloodshed and destruction.

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

Activists estimate that around 4,000 Palestinian refugees from Syria are taking cover in such Greek islands as Lesbos, Mytilene, Chios, Leros, and Kos, among other areas in Greece.
