Palestinians of Syria Between Displacement and Disappearance

Palestinians of Syria Between Displacement and Disappearance

This is mid-annual field report on Palestinians of Syria Conditions covers the period from 1 January 2016 until 30 June 2016. The report kept record of the death of thousands of Palestinian refugees and the detention of hundreds in war-torn Syria. 

The report is divided into seven sections. The first part covers the situation of the Palestinians of Syria in refugee camps and communities in the beleaguered Syrian territories, mostly in Yarmouk, Khan Al-Sheih, Al-Sayida Zeinab, Al-Husseiniya, Al-Sbiena, Jaramana, Khan Dannun, Deraa, Al-Neirab, Handarat, Homs-based Al-Aydeen, Hama-based Al-Aydeen, and Al-Raml refugee camps.

The second part sheds light on the mountainous journey endured by the Palestinian-Syrian Diaspora in Lebanon, Gaza, Turkey, and Europe.

Four sections are, meanwhile, devoted to the deadly risks run by the Palestinians of Syria on the asylum-seeking road and the initiatives embarked on by European institutions to rein in the crisis.

The last section spotlights the death toll and number of detainees among the Palestinian-Syrian refugee community. AGPS documented the death of 3247 Palestinian refugees due to war-related incidents and accidents, both inside and outside of Syria, since the outburst of deadly hostilities until June 2016.
