Commission of Palestinians of Syria in Burj AlBarajneh Launches Its Mission

The Commission of Palestinians of Syria in Burj AlBarajneh camp, in Lebanon, said in a press statement that displaced Palestinians from Syria in the camp wrote authorizations mandating the commission to follow up on their humanitarian condition, speak up for their demands, and reach out to relief organizations to that end.

The Commission said that the press statement signals the launch of its official mission and that no other party is entitled to speak on behalf of the refugees.

The Commission defines itself as an independent body with no political affiliations whatsoever and that its mission is shaped by the needs of the Palestinians of Syria.

The statement concluded by urging the Palestine Liberation Organization to stand on guard to all parties seeking to exacerbate the plight of Palestinian refugees in Lebanon.

UNRWA has identified PRS in Lebanon as one of the most marginalized and poorest communities in the region.

In its 2020 Syria crisis emergency appeal, UNRWA said that PRS in Lebanon continue to face high vulnerability and marginalization, making them heavily reliant on UNRWA humanitarian support to cover their basic needs. The socio-economic hardships and unrest experienced by the country have compounded PRS’ already dire living conditions.

According to a survey conducted by the American University of Beirut in 2015, nearly 90 percent of the PRS population in Lebanon live in poverty, including 9 per cent who are in extreme poverty and unable to meet even their most essential food requirements.

PRS’s vulnerability is further compounded by their precarious legal status. The lack of a valid legal status, often coupled with outdated civil registration documents, results in severely restricted freedom of movement for some PRS in Lebanon due to fear of arrest, detention or forced deportation.
