The conflict in Syria has deeply affected all 15 Palestinian refugee camps in Syria and all 560,000 registered Palestinian refugees in the country. Because of the indiscriminate use of heavy weapons, attacks on civilian areas and violations of international humanitarian and human rights law, more than 50% of registered Palestinian refugees of Syria have been displaced inside the country. The UN Relief and Works Agency for Palestinian refugees in the Near East (UNRWA) estimates that 95% of the 480,000 Palestinian refugees remaining in Syria are in need of humanitarian assistance.
