Activists from the Palestinians of Syria Association in Turkey have embarked on an initiative seeking to work out the legal hurdles faced by Palestinian refugees from Syria in Turkey, particularly those who illegally entered the Turkish territories and unregistered Palestinian children in Turkey.
The Palestinians of Syria Association in Turkey urged the Palestinian refugees from Syria with a frail legal status to register their names and personal information along with those of unregistered children in order to work out their situation and smooth their enrollment at schools and access to other facilities, including hospitals.
Recently, Palestinian refugees from Syria in Turkey have expressed concerns over their deteriorating condition particularly in light of the new movement clampdown imposed across Turkish provinces as part of anti-coronavirus measures.
A large number of companies, factories, and shops shut their doors for fear of further COVID-19 contaminations. Several Palestinian families have lost their sole sources of income as a result.
