Number of Migrants among Palestinians Sheltered in Syria Refugee Camp Growing Rapidly

AGPS documented an increase in the number of Palestinian migrants from AlNeirab refugee camp, in Aleppo.

The phenomenon has been attributed to forced military conscription with the Syrian government army, high unemployment rates, price leap, and lack of access to the labor market.

The crackdowns perpetrated by Liwaa AlQuds brigade, affiliated with the Syrian government, also lies behind the waves of mass exodus from the area.

Over recent weeks, more than 150 youths fled the camp, in a journey that costs up to US$1,000 per every single refugee.

Several migrants have been intensively questioned or/and detained at the Syrian-Turkish borders.

According to statistics conducted by UNRWA in 2012, some 10,358 Palestinian refugees (2,557 families) sought shelter in Aleppo and its northern suburbs. 20,978 refugees (4,893 families) took shelter in Aleppo’s AlNeirab Camp and 6,359 (1,410 families) in Handarat Camp.

AlNeirab camp lies 13 kilometers east of Aleppo and is one of the most densely populated camps for Palestine refugees in Syria. It is home to some 18,000 residents and has been affected by varying levels of hostilities throughout this eight-year long conflict.
