AGPS: 614 Palestinian Refugees Tortured to Death in Syrian Jails, 329 Missing

Statistics released on the international Human Rights Day, observed every year on 10 December, indicate that 4,009 Palestinian refugees from Syria (PRS) died of war-related incidents, including shelling, the blockade, deadly shootouts, torture, and on the migration route.

At the same time, 1,769 Palestinian refugees have been detained and/or forcibly disappeared in Syrian state-run penal complexes, where 614 others have died under torture.

PRS have also been denied easy access to neighboring countries, including Lebanon, Jordan, Egypt, Turkey, and North African countries. Besides, most of the Gulf countries have outlawed granting visas to Palestinians with Syrian travel documents since 2013.

Palestinian families in Thailand also risk to go forcibly deported as the Thai have tightened grip on refugees who overstayed their visas.

AGPS continues to urge neighboring countries to lift the entry bans slapped against PRS and to abide by international conventions prohibiting the expulsion of civilians fleeing war-stricken zones.

The international community should take urgent steps in order to push for an immediate end to the human rights violations committed against PRS in host countries, to which they fled for fear of being killed, arrested, persecuted, or tortured.

UNRWA should also step in and work on securing PRS’s right to physical, moral, and legal protection along with their right to free movement and legal stays in host countries.

The international Human Rights Day, observed every year on 10 December, is the day the United Nations General Assembly adopted, in 1948, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR): a milestone document proclaiming the inalienable rights which everyone is inherently entitled to as a human being regardless of race, color, religion, sex, language, political or other opinion, national or social origin, property, birth or other status. Available in more than 500 languages, it is the most translated document in the world.
