Palestinian Refugees from Syria Launch Cry for Help from Greek Island

Palestinian Refugees from Syria Launch Cry for Help from Greek Island

Some 350 Palestinian refugees taking shelter in Nea Kavala refugee camp, in northern Greece, have sounded distress signals over the absence of vital services and delays in asylum procedures.

Founded in 2015, Nea Kavala Camp is an old military airfield. It is home to 300 migrants, mostly from Syria, Iraq, and Afghanistan.

Dozens of Palestine refugees who fled the relentless Syrian warfare to remote Greek islands have been crammed in refugee camps that have reportedly been running at three times their capacity. Overpopulated refugee camps cause a shortage of resources, not least healthcare.

Last month 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.

Tens of thousands of Palestinian and Syrian refugees have flooded across the Mediterranean and into Greece over the past few years, counting on being relocated elsewhere in Europe as part of an E.U. plan to redistribute the asylum seekers to lighten the burden on the countries at the front lines of Europe’s migrant crisis.

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

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