The Action Group for the Palestinians of Syria called on the international community, human rights organizations, official bodies, especially the UNRWA, to put an end to the tragedy of the Palestinian-Syrians and to find a radical solution to their suffering.
In a message on the occasion of the International Migrants Day, the London-based Group said that the war declared by the Assad regime against the Syrian people negatively affected their living, economic and legal conditions. It pointed out that than 4,000 Palestinian-Syrians have so far been killed in the Assad regime’s war on the Syrian people, while about 3,076 others have been detained, and tens of thousands have been displaced from their homes.
The Group indicated that more than 200,000 Palestinian-Syrians left Syria out of 650,000 who lived there before the outbreak of the Syrian Revolution. It added that more than 60 percent of Palestinian-Syrians were displaced at least one time during the conflict.
The Group added that about 130,000 Palestinian-Syrians arrived in Europe by the end of November 2022, adding that around 29,000 others fled to Lebanon, 19,000 to Jordan, 3,000 to Egypt, 14,000 to Türkiye, and 300 to Gaza Strip.
The Group documented 79 Palestinian-Syrians who drowned while trying to reach European countries.
