Abbas to Ban: Bring Syrias Palestinian Refugees Home

Decrease font sizeIncrease font size   modify font size Print a copy


RAMALLAH, December 19, 2012 (WAFA) President Mahmoud Abbas Wednesday called on United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-moon to help the Palestinian refugees in Syria, who are suffering from the bloody conflict there, to return to live in the Palestinian Territory.

Abbas stressed the Palestinian position of non-interference in internal Arab affairs.

More than 450,000 Palestinian refugees, who include those who fled their homes in Palestine in 1948 and their descendents, live in 10 refugee camps throughout Syria.

The largest of these camps, Yarmouk, south of Damascus, has come under attack in the last few days causing the death of a number of Palestinians and displacement of thousands others.
The Palestinian refugee camps in Syria, Lebanon, Jordan and Palestine are under the jurisdiction of the UN and are administered by UNRWA - the UN Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees - since the creation of the Palestinian refugee problem following the establishment of Israel in 1948.
