Palestinian Refugees Struggling for Survival on Chios Island

AGPS has documented an increase in the number of Palestinian refugees seeking shelter in Vial camp, set up on the Greek island of Chios, where they have been struggling with dire conditions.

The number of Palestinian refugees from Syria in the camp has been estimated at 460, down from 160 a couple of months earlier.

Palestinian refugees said they have failed to secure potable water and food items in the camp. 

Migrant camps in Greece have been under quarantine in recent weeks, with authorities trying to keep residents apart from locals.

Palestinian refugees continue to risk their lives onboard the “death boats” to Greece, rummaging around for a momentary respite from violence and economic hardship. 

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.
