Two Palestinian Refugees from Syria Detained by Israeli Police for 26 Hours

Two Palestinian refugees from Syria with Swedish citizenship documents were released 26 hours after they were detained at Israel’s Ben Gurion Airport.

The refugees’ relatives told AGPS that they were both detained as they attempted to enter the occupied Palestinian territories on July 8, 2019 to visit their hometown Nazareth, from which their families were displaced.

The detainees were subjected to exhaustive interrogation at Ben Gurion airport and banned from entering the occupied Palestinian territories. They were pushed back to Europe on July 9.

Human rights activists said the entry ban and refoulement decision stand in sharp contrast to international humanitarian laws, calling for serious measures to pressurize Israel to comply with its obligations under international law.

A few months earlier, the Israeli occupation authorities banned a group of Palestinian refugees from entering Palestinian territories to attend a conference in the occupied West Bank.

More than 22,100 Palestinian refugees from Syria have obtained Swedish citizenship until the end of 2018.
