On Int’l Day of Solidarity with Palestinian People, AGPS Calls for Protection of Palestinians of Syria

On the International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People, annually observed by the United Nations on Novemeber 29, AGPS called on the international community, particularly UNRWA, to take further action in order to provide the Palestinians of Syria with the physical and legal protection they quite urgently need at such a critical time.

Palestinian refugees from Syria in Lebanon and Jordan, among other destinations, continue to launch cries for help over the precarious legal status and lack of protection they have been subjected to. Most of them have been grappling with deportation concerns and live in a perpetual fear over their families’ safety due to the security mayhem rocking the region.

Palestinians from Syria have also been denied humanitarian asylum in several destinations, including Egypt, Turkey, Saudi Arabia, the UAE and others, which represents a flagrant violation of international human rights law.

Article 13 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights states that “everyone has the right to freedom of movement and residence within the borders of each State. Everyone has the right to leave any country, including his own, and to return to his country.”

AGPS also urges the Palestinian Authority and its diplomatic missions to work on lifting movement sanctions on Palestinian refugees in host countries, as decreed by international humanitarian law.
