Fatah AlIntifada to Work Out Situation of Palestinians in Syria without Identity Documents

Fatah AlIntifada battalion, affiliated with the Syrian government forces, called on Palestinian refugees in Syria who have not obtained official identity documents to show up at its offices and submit their demands to that end.

An AGPS field reporter said Palestinians without travel documents will benefit from the measure.

Palestinian refugees in Syria are classified into four major groups: the first group includes refugees who fled their homes in 1948. They are treated as Syrian nationals in their rights to education and access to the labor market. However, they are denied other basic rights, including citizenship, suffrage, and candidacy for membership in the People's Assembly.

The second group comprises those who were displaced from their homes in 1956. Many of them have been registered with UNRWA. They are granted similar rights as the 1948 refugees. However, they are only allowed to receive temporary jobs.

The third category includes refugees displaced in 1967 and is pided into two groups: the first group is registered with the refugee institution and treated as members of the 1956 category; Unregistered refugees are, however, treated as foreigners in case they are holders of Egyptian travel documents. Holders of Jordanian passports are treated as residents.

The last category comprises the refugees of 1970. Their case is the most complicated as most of them do not have identity documents. They left their homes in Gaza and the West Bank and sought refuge in Jordan and then in Syria.
