The Action Group for the Palestinians of Syria (AGPS) said that the Assad regime seized and destroyed the property of Palestinian-Syrian activists in many Palestinian refugees camps in Damascus and Aleppo provinces on charges of collaboration with the Syrian opposition.
In a report issued on Monday, the London-based monitoring group said that the Assad regime expropriated properties of Palestinian-Syrians in the camps of Al-Sabina, Khan Al-Shih, Al-Husayniyyah, and Al-Diyabiya in Rural Damascus as well as and the camps of Al-Nayrab and Handarat in Aleppo. The regime accused them of involvement in relief efforts, media activity, and military activity. The decision also affected detainees who the Assad regime accuses of dealing with the Syrian opposition, terrorism, or belonging to a Palestinian faction that has declared its opposition to the regime.
The Group pointed out that dozens of Palestinian-Syrian households lost their homes in many areas across Syria. It pointed out that these homes were confiscated by the Assad regime’s security apparatuses, ministries of the regime’s government, and pro-regime militiamen.
Issued under the title “Seizure of Property of Palestinian Refugees in Syria,” the report was written to act as a reference for researchers working on Palestinian refugees, especially Palestinian refugees in Syria. (Source: SOC’s Media Department)
