LONDON, (PIC)– Palestinian refugee family drowned off Greece coasts while trying to reach Europe after fleeing from the ongoing events in Syria, Action Group for Palestinian Refugee in Syria revealed.

In its statement issued Saturday, the Action Group documented the death of six members of one Palestinian family on the 14th of November off Greece after fleeing from the Syrian conflict, pointing out that they were buried in a cemetery northern Greece.

In a related incident, the Action Group reported the martyrdom of Palestinian refugee Mohammed Mohawesh and the injury of many others on Friday due to repeated shelling targeting Dar’aa refugee camp in Syria.

A state of calm has prevailed in Palestinian refugee camps in Syria particularly Yarmouk refugee camp in which Palestinian refugees have marched after Friday prayers demanding an end to the tight siege imposed on the camp for 130 days.

A boat carrying Syrian and Palestinian refugees capsized off Italy after a Libyan military vessel fired on them as it left Libya on the 11th of October, leaving more than 200 victims among the refugees.
