UN appeals for aid for Syria's Palestinians

Krahenbuhl said there were approximately 500,000 Palestinian refugees registered in Syria at the outset of the conflict. UNRWA has nine registered camps for Palestinian refugees in Syria, housing those who fled or were forced from their homes when the state of Israel was created in 1948, and their descendants.
