Over 240 Palestinian refugee children killed in Syria since 2011


DAMASCUS, PALESTINOW.COM — The Action Group for Palestinians of Syria (AGPS) said that 241 Palestinian children have been killed in the war in Syria.

The AGPS monitoring and documentation team said that 123 children were killed by shelling and 15 by sniper bullets, 11 were gunned down,  two died under torture, and 22 drowned in the sea. One child was killed in mysterious circumstances.

The team said that 22 children were killed in car blasts, 34 died as a result of the blockade and lack of medical care, and 14 either were fatally burned, choked to death, died in a run-over accident, or were kidnapped then killed.

The AGPS believes the number on the ground is larger because its reporters and correspondents were unable to document the ages of all victims due to the continued bombing and clashes.

Based on the latest AGPS statistics, 3,920 Palestinian refugees have been killed in Syria since the war started.
