28 Palestinians killed in Pro-regime's battles in Syria
(Action Group For Palestinians Of Syria)- 28 Palestinian refugees died as they fought alongside popular committees affiliated with the government forces. Most of the casualties are residents of Yarmouk Camp in Damascus and Handarat and Al-Neirab refugee camps, in Aleppo.

Shortly after the outburst of the deadly warfare, the Syrian government forced Palestinian refugees aged 18 and above to join affiliated militias for periods of at least one year and a half.

Those who refuse conscription are subjected to crackdowns, abductions and even executions. As a result, thousands fled the tension-stricken country in the hunt for a safer shelter.

AGPS has documented the death of over 3,900 Palestinian refugees in Syria, including women and children, since 2011, as a result of war-related incidents.

Scores of Palestinian refugees have also been left wounded, including dozens who have undergone limb amputation or eye loss.
