Palestinian Refugees Denounce Property-Theft in Syria

Property-theft and house burglary have been increasingly reported at Palestinian refugee camps in Syria.

Activists told AGPS that pro-government gunmen in Syria have been raking through Palestinian displacement camps and stealing refugees’ belongings under the security pretext.

This has been the case in the refugee camps of Yarmouk, AlHusainiya, AlSabina, Khan Eshieh, AlAyedeen in Hums, and AlRaml in Latakia. Scores of Palestinian families displaced by the warfare have had their homes burglarized, demolished, and/or blown up. 

AGPS has expressed deep concern over the repercussions of property-theft on the Palestinian refugee community in Syria. The Syrian authorities should respect international human rights and humanitarian laws prohibiting confiscation of civilian homes and seizure of private property. 

AGPS has called on the concerned human rights institutions to work on detecting and revealing property management and registration frauds carried out against Palestinian and Syrian refugees who fled the ravaged country for fear of being persecuted, killed, or tortured on political grounds.
