Activists Speak Up for Palestinians from Syria in Thailand

Palestinian activists appealed to the Palestinian Authority, chaired by Mahmoud Abbas, the UN High Commissioner for Refugees, and the mass media to rally around Palestinians from Syria in Thailand, where they have been facing the risk of detention and refoulement.

According to the activists, over 600 Palestinian refugees in Thailand have become increasingly at risk of being detained or forcibly deported after the Thai authorities tightened their grip on refugees who overstayed their visas.

The situation has exacerbated as the UNHCR failed to live up to its missions regarding the situation of the Palestinians of Syria in Thailand. No other country has expressed its willingness to receive the refugees fleeing war-torn Syria in its territories.

The activists called on the UNHCR to take urgent steps as regards the Palestinians of Syria in Thailand for they fall outside of UNRWA’s fields of operation.

They further appealed to the Thai authorities to treat Palestinian refugees in accordance with international laws and standards.
