In the five years since the civil war in Syria began, more than 3,180 Palestinians have been killed, and an estimated 110,000 have fled abroad in search of safety, following attacks on Palestinian camps in the country like Yarmouk and Khan Eshieh.
In this fact sheet, we explore how Palestinians have been affected by the war, and their access to humanitarian aid and assistance as twice-displaced refugees. Click here to read the fact sheet.

The Palestine Red Crescent Society (PRCS) records the timings of ambulance transfers and any incidents which may occur on a central database in order to track the work of their staff and identify issues to be raised with the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC).
In partnership with Physicians for Human Rights Israel (PHRI), MAP have collated the statistics and cases outlined in this fact sheet, demonstrating demonstrate the issues faced by PRCS teams on a daily basis. They highlight the negative impact of checkpoints and, in particular, back-to-back ambulance transfers on journeys and, most importantly, on patient health.
