The UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR) has described their plight as “by far the most protracted and largest of all refugee problems in the world today”While there is much focus on the Israeli Palestinian conflict on a political level there is very little, if any, mention of the refugees and internally displaced Palestinians who comprise three quarters of the global Palestinian population. There is also very little attention given to the routine demolition and expulsion which continue to swell the number of refugees. The 7.1 Million Palestinian refugees face many difficult challenges which require greater attention from the international community.This bulletin provides an update on the condition of Palestinian refugees around the world over the past month. It covers stories from the Occupied Territories, internally displaced Palestinians in Israel, UNRWA, host countries, Palestinians in the Diaspora and commentaries relating to the refugees.HEADLINES•    Israeli Army Invades Jenin and Abducts Palestinians•    Palestinian Refugees Consider a Model for Return  •    UN Special Rapporteur Urges Greater Protection for Palestinian Children•    Palestinian Cancer Patients Protest Meager Funds for Treatment•    Eight Wounded in Lebanon Bomb Blast and Palestinian Refugee Camp
