450 Palestinian Refugees from Syria Launch Cry for Help from Greek Island

450 Palestinian refugees from Syria who have sought refuge in AlKaroura camp, set up on the Greek island of Chios, have been subjected to a dire humanitarian situation in the poorly-equipped tents.

The refugees denounced the absence of vital services, saying they have been forced to sleep outdoors due to overcrowding.

They further spoke out against the spread of poisonous reptiles and rodents due to the poor hygiene in the camp.

The displaced families called on the international human rights organizations, including the UN High Commissioner for Refugees, to take urgent action in response to their appeals.

The Greek authorities continue to drag their feet over the refugees’ calls to have their legal status worked out and to provide them with safe shelters.

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.

Activists estimate that around 4,000 Palestinian refugees from Syria are seeking refuge in Greece.
