Sweden to Deport Palestinian Refugee

Sweden to Deport Palestinian Refugee

The Swedish Migration Office refused to grant asylum to 27-year-old Palestinian refugee Lein AlKhatib and decided to deport her to Lebanon, where her mother, a Lebanese national, and daughter live, according to Swedish news outlets.

Lein was born in Syria in 1992. In 2012, she fled with her family to Lebanon, where they faced dire conditions. The family returned to Syria, before they headed for Europe.

Some five years earlier, Lein and her younger brother and father left for Sweden, where her brother was granted asylum lest he be forced to join the Syrian army.

The Swedish authorities refused, however, to grant asylum to Lein and her father. In response to a renewed application, the Migration Office granted them a 16-month visa that expired last week.

Lein expressed concerns over her forced deportation by the Swedish police, adding that she was once pushed back from Lebanon to Stockholm.

Activists attributed the situation to the precarious legal status endured by Palestinian refugees born in Syria.
