37 Palestinian Female Refugees Missing in War-Torn Syria

37 Palestinian women and girls have gone missing since the outbreak of the Syrian conflict. The list includes nine female refugees from Yarmouk Camp and 10 from AlTadhamun neighborhood.

According to activists, several abductions were carried under the security guise. Arrestees’ families have often been subjected to blackmailing.

Over 300 Palestinian refugees, male and female, have gone missing in war-ragged Syria, half of whom are from Yarmouk Camp, south of Damascus.

Inherently a taboo misdemeanor in the MENA region, violence against women, be it sexual, physical, or verbal, has remained under-reported among the Palestinian refugee community in Syria, with reasons wavering between fear of retaliation, embarrassment, fear of punishment for those below the age of criminal responsibility, and distrust in law enforcement.
