Palestinian Families Stranded on Greek Island Launch Cry for Help

Dozens of Palestinian and Syrian refugees detained on the Greek island of Rhodes have appealed to the national and international human rights institutions to work on their urgent release from custody, where they have been facing squalid captivity conditions.

In a letter emailed to AGPS, Palestinian activists said among the detained refugees are men, women, and elderly people, who have all been subjected to mistreatment by Greek prison authorities.

The refugees landed on the island in early October. Women have been separated from men in jail.

Activists quoted a refugee as stating that the prison authorities have banned the refugees from going out to the prison yard and reaching the eating place. Wardens also continue to prevent their access to winter blankets.

The refugees said a number of sick migrants diagnosed with kidney disorders and skin diseases, among other health problems, have had their health condition worsened due to poor hygiene and medical neglect.

Children below the age of 10 have reportedly been clinging to their mothers’ arms in custody, where expectant women have also been held.

The refugees appealed for their immediate release and for urgent medical treatment.
