160 Palestinian Refugees from Syria Reach Greece over Last Couple of Months

Over 160 Palestinian refugees from Syria have landed on Greece islands over October and November 2019.

An AGPS news correspondent said the 160 refugees reached islands on the Aegean coast, including Mytilene, Samos, Kos, Chios, Symi, and Leros.

Thousands of Palestinian young men and displaced families have also headed for neighboring Turkey, seeking better living conditions and livelihoods.

Unofficial statistics indicate that 8,000 Palestinians from Syria have sought shelter in Turkey, where they have been facing dire socio-economic conditions and denied access to the local labor market.

Turkish embassies continue to prevent Palestinian refugees from Syria from obtaining visas. As a result, hundreds of Palestinians have embarked on life-threatening journeys via illegal immigration roads to reach Turkey, fleeing war-tattered Syria, among other war-stricken zones.

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.
