Palestinian Refugees Declare Hunger-Strike on Greek Island over Squalid Conditions

Dozens of Palestinian refugees trapped on the Greek island of Rhodes have gone on hunger strike due to their deteriorating humanitarian and health conditions.

In a letter emailed to AGPS, Palestinian activists said women, children, and elderly refugees have undergone harsh treatment in a detention center in Rhodes.

Palestinian and Syrian migrants have disembarked on the island in early October. They were sent to custody and denied their basic rights.

 

Activists also said that the prison administration has prevented the refugees from going out to the prison yard and getting food. Wardens have refused to hand them over winter blankets.

A number of sick refugees have also been spotted in the prison section of male captives. Kidney disorders and skin diseases have been reported due to poor hygiene and inhumane conditions of captivity.

Children below the age of 10 and expectant women have also been left without treatment.

The trapped refugees have appealed to all human rights and humanitarian institutions along with the Palestine Embassy to immediately step in and push for their release and treatment.
