Over 250 Palestinians from Syria Reached Greece in Last Couple of Months

As the migrant influx from Syria and Turkey to Greece has reached a zenith, more than 250 Palestinian refugees have landed on Greek islands in August and September.

Reporting from Greece, an AGPS news correspondent said the refugees disembarked on the Aegean islands of Samos, Kos, Leros, Symi, Chios, and Mytilene.

Due to overcrowding, the refugees have failed to receive adequate medical treatment and checks

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, denouncing the absence of vital services, including health care, housing, relief assistance, and power and water.

In 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.

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.
