Palestinian Refugees Urge Mahmoud Abbas to Broker their Safe Return to Palestine

Palestinian families and activists from Syria in Lebanon have called on the Palestinian Authority (PA) President Mahmoud Abbas to work on securing their safe return to their homeland Palestine at a time when European countries have been denying them humanitarian asylum.

In a Wednesday statement issued in response to statements attributed to Fatah Movement regarding migration flows among Palestinian refugees, the activists said they will stand on guard against conspiracies aiming at boosting the mass exodus of Palestinians toward other destinations.

The activists said they will keep up protest moves until Abbas recognizes the right of return for all Palestinians who have been torn away from their motherland since 1948.

The activists urged the PA President to issue a statement in no more than a week’s time to respond to their appeals.

A few days earlier, dozens of Palestinian refugees from Syria rallied outside of the Canadian embassy in Beirut to push for their safe access to Canada from Lebanon, where they have been denied their basic rights.

Nearly 28,000 Palestinian refugees from Syria seeking shelter in Lebanon have been subjected to dire socio-economic conditions and a precarious legal status as the Lebanese authorities continue to rebuff their appeals for legal visas and access to the local labor market.

Palestinian refugees from Syria are reported to lack legal status in Lebanon. The absence of a specific legislation addressing the unique situation of the Palestinians of Syria has made them vulnerable to marginalization within the Lebanese polity, both as inpiduals and as a community.

Palestinian refugees from Syria in Lebanon are also treated as foreigners rather than as asylum-seekers and are, thus, denied the right to renewed stays and subjected to forced deportation.
