    While the spotlight is focused on the arrival of Syrian refugees in Europe, researcher Kamel Doraï reminds us that the main countries concerned are primarily those in the region. Jordan is among the countries that has received the highest number of Syrians, sharpening economic and social tensions in a country already gripped by the presence of Palestinian and Iraqi refugees.   Palestinian Refugees From Syria Face Harsh Conditions in Jordan. Palestinians residing in war-torn Syria have been fleeing in growing numbers to Jordan, where officials are assigning them to camps set apart from other Syrian refugees, Tamer Samadi reports. Some of these camps have previously been criticized by human rights groups.

    Displaced Palestinian Arabs, known as Palestinian refugees, were settled in Palestinian refugee camps throughout the Arab world. Most fled to the West Bank, the Gaza Strip, Lebanon, Syria, and Jordan.

According to the UNRWA’s operational definition, Palestinian refugees are those persons who resided in Palestine between June and May , and who lost their homes and livelihoods as a result of the third of the Palestine refugees registered with the UNRWA, or more than million displaced persons, live in 58 officially recognised.

      To see how humanitarian effects play out, I turn now to look at the experiences of a particular population of Palestinian refugees living within this changing humanitarian order. I focus on a group of people who have been twice displaced: refugees to Gaza in and then displaced to Jordan . Palestinian refugees from Syria (PRS) are among those particularly affected by the conflict. Over , PRS have fled the country, including aro to Lebanon, as of June
