Palestinian Refugees in Greece’s Leros Island Sound Distress Signals

A number of Palestinian and Syrian families who have sought refuge in the Greek island of Leros have been subjected to an exacerbated humanitarian situation due to the absence of vital services, including health care, housing, relief assistance, and power and water.

The refugees continue to call on the international human rights organizations to take urgent action in response to their appeals.

Some 150 Palestinians from Syria are taking shelter in a refugee camp set up in Leros island, where they have been grappling with dire socio-economic conditions.

The refugees compared the camp to an open-air prison, saying their tents have been engulfed with barbed wire that blocks access out of and into the camp.

They further denounced the mistreatment and crackdowns they have been subjected to by the Greek police. A number of migrants were injured after they were heavily beaten by cops.

Palestinian refugees from Syria continue to risk their lives onboard the “death boats” to Greece, rummaging around for a momentary respite from the daily scenes of bloodshed and destruction.

AGPS has kept record of the death of dozens of refugees onboard Greece-bound ships. Several others have been arrested by Turkish coast guards near the borders.

Activists estimate that around 4,000 Palestinian refugees from Syria are taking cover in such Greek islands as Lesbos, Mytilene, Chios, Leros, and Kos, among other areas in Greece.
