Palestinians of Syria: Trump’s Peace Plan Unwelcome, Our Right of Return Not for Sale

Protests have been held by Palestinian refugees taking shelter across the Syrian territories in response to the US President Donald Trump’s peace plan, announced on Tuesday.

Hundreds of refugees took to the streets in the refugee camps of AlNeirab in Aleppo, AlAyedeen in Hums, AlRaml in Latakia, along with AlHusainiya, Khan Dannun, and AlSayeda Zeinab camps, in Rif Dimashq. Families displaced from Yarmouk Camp also joined the protests.

The refugees voiced their firm commitment to their right of return to their homeland, which they said is an inalienable, legitimate, and internationally-recognized right.

Palestinian masses nationwide and overseas have been deeply angered by the US President Donald Trump’s newly-revealed peace plan, dubbed “the deal of the century”, which they said aims at dealing a heavy blow to the refugees’ internationally-recognized right of return to their homeland—Palestine.

According to UN General Assembly Resolution 194 adopted in 1948, Palestinian refugees are entitled to return to their homeland. However, Israel insists the refugees stay where they are as their return may greatly change regional demographics and create security concerns.

Under the US plan, "there shall be no right of return by, or absorption of, any Palestinian refugee into the State of Israel." Rather, the refugees would be absorbed into the State of Palestine or integrated into their current host countries.

The plan also seeks to dismantle Palestinian refugee camps across the Israeli-occupied territories and replacing them with new residential communities, a move that represents another threat to Palestinians’ refugee status and, thus, their right of return to their homeland.

The Palestinian Foreign Ministry said in a statement that the “deal of the century” reinforces Israel’s position and its apartheid policies against the Palestinians.
