The Palestinian-Syrians called on international, human rights and humanitarian organizations to work on ending their tragedy which has been ongoing since the start of the revolution in 2011.
In a report issued on Sunday, the Action Group for Palestinians of Syria said that Palestinian-Syrians have been subjected to serious violations, which have left thousands of victims, wounded, detainees and displaced people inside and outside Syria.
The London-based rights group indicated that the Palestinian-Syrian camps and neighborhoods were relentlessly bombarded by the Assad regime and Russia forces, adding that more than 75 percent of the four biggest camps were destroyed, namely the camps of Yarmouk, Dara’a, Sbeinah, and Handarat.
The report indicated that the Yarmouk and Dara’a camps were besieged by the Assad regime forces and their allied militias, which prevented the delivery of food and medical supplies, and cut off access to electricity and water for thousands of Palestinian-Syrians. It pointed out that at least 219 Palestinian-Syrians died due to starvation, extreme poverty and lack of medical care as a result of the siege, the majority of whom were children and the elderly.
According to the report, thousands of Palestinian-Syrians were detained by the Assad regime, ISIS, and Al-Nusra Front. It also indicated that more than 2,000 others are still forcibly disappeared by the Assad regime as their fate is still unknown, adding that at least 638 Palestinian-Syrians died under torture at the hands of the Assad regime.
The group had earlier said that it documented the names of no fewer than 4,121 Palestinian-Syrians who have been killed across Syria since March 2011, and 333 others who have gone missing, including many children and the elderly. (SOC’s media department)
