On World Refugee Day, AGPS Raises Alarm Bells over Situation of Palestinian Refugees in War-Torn Syria

On the world refugee day, observed on June 20 each year, Palestinian refugees from Syria continue to face a calamitous situation both inside and outside of the embattled Syrian territories.

The Syrian conflict has had disastrous fallouts on the Palestinian refugee community in the country, with over 260,000 refugees internally displaced at least once during the war.

Thousands have, meanwhile, been living below the poverty line, lost their sources of incomes, and have become dependent on UNRWA’s sporadic aids. Hundreds of families fled to neighboring countries and European destinations, risking their lives onboard the so-called “death boats”.

AGPS kept record of the death of 3,987 Palestinian refugees due to war-related incidents, including shelling, blasts, fatal torture in jail, or on the migration route.

At the same time, as many as 2,084 men, women, and minors have been secretly locked up in state-run prisons after they were kidnapped from refugee camps and shelters across the Syrian territories.

AGPS strongly condemns the violations perpetrated against Palestinian refugees in Syria and the infringements of their basic human rights, in violation of the international law and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

AGPS calls on all warring parties to keep the refugees at bay from the bloody hostilities and military calculations.

The Syrian government should disclose the whereabouts and condition of all detainees and ensure they are fairly trialed and humanly treated while in custody.

All concerned authorities should combine forces so as to reconstruct destroyed Palestinian refugee camps. Serious steps should be made by UNRWA in order to rehabilitate the refugees’ psycho-physical protection and enhance their living conditions in northern Syria and other zones, including Lebanon and Jordan.
