The Action Group for Palestinians of Syria (AGPS), in partnership with the Palestinian Return Centre (PRC), issued the second semi-annual report on the situation of the Palestinians of Syria for the period from July 2016 to December 2016.
The report sheds light on the exacerbated situation endured by the Palestinians of Syria as a result of the raging Syrian warfare and the tragic fallouts inflicted on the Palestinian refugee community, including the mass waves of enforced deportation, dislodgement, the tough blockade, and carnages.
The report provides thorough data on the daily onslaughts, death toll, number of detainees, and missing refugees in war-torn Syria.
The study also underscores the crises endured by the Palestinian community in refugee camps across the embattled Syrian territories.
It further cites cases of success stories achieved by Palestinians from Syria nationwide and overseas.
At the same time, the report provides a detailed account of the violations perpetrated against the Palestinians from Syria on the asylum-seeking road and in such new destinations as Lebanon, Jordan, Egypt, Turkey, and Europe.
During the second half of 2016, AGPS kept record of the death of 138 Palestinians due to war-related incidents inside and outside the Syrian territories.
The 109-page report is based on data compiled by a team of field reporters, on-the-spot observers, journalists, and researchers.
Five such reports documenting the situation of the Palestinians of Syria in the first and second halves of 2014 and 2015, along with the first half of 2016, were issued by AGPS and PRC.
