But their deaths gets little media attention. Why? Because these Palestinians aren’t being killed by Jews! They are being killed by their fellow Arabs! And Palestinian lives only matter when those lives are taken by Jews!
Upwards of 430,000 Palestinian refugees still live in Syria, many trapped in besieged or hard-to-reach areas, according to UNRWA.
Action Group for Palestinians of Syria says at least 3,729 Palestinian refugees have been killed during Syria’s civil war, while 309 are considered missing and another 1,674 are currently detained.
SANA, the Syrian government’s state media outlet, said on Friday that government forces were advancing in several areas in southern Damascus, including al-Hajar al-Aswad, the neighbourhood situated adjacent to Yarmouk.
Many Palestinian refugees from Yarmouk have been displaced to al-Hajar al-Aswad.
Friday’s report came just one day after SANA reported that government forces had killed “dozens of terrorists” in the area.
Throughout seven years of war in Syria, hundreds of thousands of people have been killed and millions have fled Syria or are displaced within the country’s borders.
