ILoubnan - UNRWA concerned about over 20,000 inaccessible Palestinian civilians in southern Syria, February 18, 2016

UNRWA in a statement yesterday expressed its concern about the plight of over twenty thousand civilians in Palestine camps and gatherings in Dera’a governorate in the south of Syria as well as in Khan Eshieh camp, south west of Damascus.

The UN Agency said it has not had humanitarian access to these areas in over two years, though limited civilian traffic in and out is permitted. In both areas, refugees have been exposed to direct armed conflict, violence and humanitarian deprivation and we need immediate and sustained humanitarian access. In Khan Eshieh we estimate that there are about 5,000 civilians and in the inaccessible areas of Dera’a governorate we estimate there are about 17,500 people, including many thousands of children.
