Turkey - SMART

On Monday, the Working Group for Palestinians in Syria called on the international community and donor countries to double funding for UNRWA to continue providing services to refugees in Syria.

This calling came through a letter sent by the working group to a conference of UNRWA donors in New York City.

In its letter, the group stressed the need to provide financial support for the continuation of UNRWA's work in proportion to the "growing Palestinian refugees plight" and to ensure the sustainability of its funding to provide services to refugees at all levels of education, health, and relief. The group also stressed the need to develop the Agency's work to include the physical and legal protection of refugees.

The letter stated that the suffering of the Palestinian refugees in Syria "has increased significantly due to the continued fighting and the fragile legal status of the refugees, who are subjected to death, arrest, and displacement."

418,000 Syrian Palestinians depend directly on UNRWA assistance. About 95 percent of them suffer from the lack of food security, as well as 3,776 are killed, and more than 1,674 are detainees in prisons, according to the group.

The loyalist forces bombed areas where the Palestinian refugees lived, such as the Khan al-Sheikh refugee camp and the Yarmouk refugee camp south of Damascus, where also clashes took place. The Syrian government displaced hundreds of families from these areas to Northern Syria as part of separate agreements in the region.
