 Hundreds of Palestinian volunteers forcibly disappeared in Syria
Action Group For Palestinians Of Syria (AGPS) documented the death of 3,989 Palestinian refugees in war-torn Syria, among them hundreds of activities, relief officers, and volunteer medics.

Daily scenes of bloodshed and destruction led to deteriorating humanitarian conditions in Syria. AGPS kept record of serious violations against medics, paramedics, and ambulances by the different warring parties in Syria. Wounded civilians, expectant woman, elderly people, and hundreds of humanitarian cases have faced severe difficulties trying to reach hospitals and medical centers.

At the same time, heavy damage has been wrought on medical equipment in Palestinian refugee camps and shelters as a result of the deadly onslaughts, burglary attacks, and property-theft assaults carried out against hospitals, clinics, and pharmacies.

AGPS documented flagrant violations against medical crews and relief officers. These include extra-judicial killing, abduction, crackdowns, movement restrictions, and torture in jail.

Lists of dozens of medics, paramedics, and volunteers who have been killed, detained, forcibly disappeared, or tortured to death in Syria figure in AGPS’ archives.

AGPS reiterates its calls to the Syrian government and all other concerned parties to protect people carrying out humanitarian missions in tension-stricken zones. (AGPS)
