GAPAR calls for stopping terrorist attacks on Palestinian refugees in Syria

Damascus, SANA – The General Authority for Palestinian Arab Refugees (GAPAR) called on Saturday for forcing the states that support terrorist organizations to withdraw these organizations from Yarmouk Camp in Damascus and to stop terrorist attacks on Palestinian refugees in Syria.

In a letter directed to Commissioner-General of United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA) Peter Krahenbuhl, the GAPAR pointed out that terrorist rocket, mortar, and sniper attacks in Aleppo are targeting Palestinian refugee camps there, and that the injust and illegal sanctions imposed on Syria have serious negative effects on both Syrians and Palestinian refugees, calling for lifting these unilateral sanctions.

The GAPAR also stressed the importance of the standing cooperation and coordination between the Syrian government and the UNRWA to implement the 2016 humanitarian response plan for the Palestinian refugees and in delivering aid to them.
