Palestinian Refugee Heavily Beaten by Greek Police in Samos Island

Greek police came down heavily on Palestinian refugee from Syria Mustafa Akleh in Samos Island after he showed up in the area to retrieve his belongings.

Akleh lived in AlTadhamun neighborhood, in Syria’s Yarmouk Camp for Palestinian refugees, south of Damascus.

Some 900 Palestinian refugees from Syria have sought shelter in the Greek island of Samos, where they have been crammed in overpopulated tents.

In recent months, Greek refugee camps have reportedly been running at three times their capacity. Overpopulated refugee camps cause a shortage of resources, not least healthcare.

Last month, UNICEF warned that the number of unaccompanied migrant minors staying in overcrowded reception centers on the Greek islands exceeds 1,100, the highest level since the peak of the refugee crisis in early 2016, calling on European countries to do more to protect vulnerable children.

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 taking cover on such Greek islands as Lesbos, Mytilene, Chios, Leros, and Kos, among other areas.
