UNRWA: 30% of Palestine Refugees from Syria in Jordan Highly Vulnerable

UNRWA said that 30% of Palestinian refugees from Syria (PRS) are highly vulnerable.

In its “Syria Regional Crisis Emergency Appeal 2019”, UNRWA said that 31 per cent of recorded PRS are members of female-headed households, which increases their vulnerability.

Due to new arrivals and natural population growth, the number of PRS recorded with the UNRWA in Jordan increased from 16,779 inpiduals in October 2017 to 17,719 at the end of October 2018. Based on observed trends, UNRWA expects the number of PRS to increase to 18,500 inpiduals by the end of 2019.

PRS who have entered from Syria and remain in Jordan irregularly are living under continuous risk of arrest, detention and potential for forced return to Syria. Their lack of legal status and corresponding protection risks in Jordan are a source of major concern to UNRWA.

After eight years of conflict, Palestinian refugees in and from Syria continue to face significant humanitarian and protection needs. In the absence of a durable political settlement, intense hostilities and violence resulting in deaths and injuries, internal displacement, loss of livelihoods, decreases in the provision of public services, and extensive damage to civilian infrastructure have disrupted the lives of civilians and severely undermined coping mechanisms.

According to the Agency’s database, of the estimated 438,000 Palestine refugees remaining inside Syria, over 95 per cent (418,000) are in critical need of sustained humanitarian assistance. Some 254,000 Palestine refugees have been displaced at least once since the beginning of the conflict and an estimated 13,500 are trapped in hard-to reach or inaccessible locations.
