The Action Group for Palestinians of Syria (AGPS) said that it had documented the deaths of over 3,613 Palestinian-Syrians since the outbreak of the Syrian revolution in March 2011, including 463 women.
In a new report released on Sunday, the British-based monitoring group said that the victims included 204 Palestinian-Syrians who died in the Yarmouk refugee camp in southeastern Damascus as a result of malnutrition and lack of medical care resulting from the siege regime forces impose on the area.
The Action Group said that at least 1,643 Palestinian-Syrians, including 105 women, are still detained in the prisons of the Assad regime.
The rights group pointed out that about 85,000 Palestinian-Syrians have arrived in Europe as of late 2016, while 31,000 more made it to Lebanon.
The report indicated that 17,000 Palestinian-Syrians fled to Jordan, 8,000 to Turkey, 6,000 to Egypt, and about a thousand who fled to the Gaza Strip.
Thousands of Palestinian-Syrians have been forced to leave their homes inside the refugee camps to escape the tragic conditions in which they lived in, the report added.
According to UN estimates, approximately 450,000 Palestinian-Syrians are still living in Syria, 95 per cent of which are in need of humanitarian assistance.
Based in London, the United Kingdom, AGPS is a rights group comprising Palestinian and Arab human rights activists who have been monitoring and documenting violations against Palestinian-Syrians since 2012 as no official or non-official institutions do the task.
