Belarus Embassy in Damascus Suspends Entry Visas

The embassy of Belarus in Damascus updated Palestinian refugees and Syrian nationals on its decision to suspend visa issuance.

Eye-witnesses said the Embassy of the Republic of Belarus requested that persons who applied for visas show up at the Embassy and retrieve their documents. The Belavia Belarusian Airlines has decided to suspend tickets for Palestinian refugees, Syrians, and Yemenis. 

Palestinian refugees, including those who fled war-torn Syria, have been subjected to dire humanitarian conditions on the Polish-Belarus borders.

Speaking with the Action Group for Palestinians of Syria, a number of migrants said dozens of Palestinian refugees, among them women, have been trapped near Poland and left without roofs over their heads under extremely cold weather conditions. Neither food nor water are available in the area.

Polish and Belarusian border guards arrested scores of migrants who attempted to cross the border. People caught by authorities are subjected to heavy beating and intensive search before they are locked up in isolated locations and get robbed of their mobile phones and property. They are ultimately pushed to the Belorussian borders.

Over recent months, hundreds of people from places like Iraq, Syria, Afghanistan and Africa have been trying to cross the border illegally every day. Poland has declared a state of emergency in the region and plans to build a wall on the border.

The Polish parliament has also passed legislation that human rights advocates say aims to legalise pushbacks of migrants across its borders in breach of the country’s commitments under international law.
