700 Palestinian refugees from Syria are taking shelter in Iraq’s Kurdistan region.
A number of Palestinian refugees taking shelter in Kurdistan region, north of Iraq, have been prevented from renewing their visas, human rights sources have reported.
The Action Group for Palestinians of Syria (AGPS), a London-based human rights monitor, said Palestinians with Syrian travel documents have been forced by the Kurdistan authorities to sign a pledge outlawing the renewal of their visas.
The decision implies that hundreds of Palestinian refugees who overstayed their visas in Kurdistan are at the risk of refoulement.
AGPS database indicates that 700 Palestinian refugees from Syria are taking shelter in Iraq’s Kurdistan region, where they have been subjected to squalid humanitarian conditions.
