UNRWA is extremely worried about the situation in Syria. Around half of Palestine refugees living in the country have been displaced due to the ongoing conflict.
UNRWA Commissioner-General Filippo Grandi visited Syria last week to see first-hand the impact of conflict and displacement on Palestine refugees and to provide his personal support and encouragement for UNRWA’s operations.
Mr. Grandi met with Syrian Government officials and reinforced his message to Palestinians to preserve their neutrality and to keep out of the conflict.
