Palestinian Refugee Tents in Greece Flooded by Violent Rain Torrents

Palestinian Refugee Tents in Greece Flooded by Violent Rain Torrents

Dozens of migrants took to the streets in the Greek island of Kos after refugee tents have been uprooted and others have fallen apart as torrential downpours have swamped refugee camps set up on the island.

Pictures and videos circulated on social media show dozens of refugees lying in the streets, without roofs over their heads, while their tents have been dismantled by the rain showers.

Over recent weeks, displaced Palestinian families in Greece-based refugee camps have expressed concerns over their fate as a freezing winter season has been around the corner.

The refugees have denounced the absence of vital services, including health care, housing, relief assistance, and power and water.

They further call on the international human rights organizations to take urgent action in response to their appeals.

More than 200 Palestinians from Syria are taking shelter in Kos island, where they have been grappling with squalid conditions and crammed in overcrowded and poorly-equipped tents.

Over recent years, Greek refugee camps have reportedly been running at three times their capacity. Overpopulated refugee camps cause a shortage of resources, not least healthcare. Often mental health issues are overlooked, despite many refugees having experienced severe trauma

Earlier this month, UNICEF warned that the number of unaccompanied migrant minors staying in overcrowded reception centers on the Greek islands exceeds 1,100, the highest level since the peak of the refugee crisis in early 2016, calling on European countries to do more to protect vulnerable children.

Palestinian refugees from Syria continue to risk their lives onboard the “death boats” to Greece, rummaging around for a momentary respite from the daily scenes of bloodshed and destruction.

AGPS has kept record of the death of dozens of refugees onboard Greece-bound ships. Several others have been arrested by Turkish coast guards.

Activists estimate that around 4,000 Palestinian refugees from Syria are taking cover on such Greek islands as Lesbos, Mytilene, Chios, Leros, and Kos, among other areas.
