the civil war there are an estimated four hundred thirty eight thousand palestinian refugees in syria and according to the u.n. about one hundred twenty thousand of them were forced to leave syria for neighboring countries like lebanon and jordan but the u.n. has access to only ten of the twelve refugee camps and most are damaged or completely inaccessible because of the violence around forty percent of the classroom run. by the un agency that helps palestinians were destroyed and a quarter of its health facilities are out of service. well p.r. ken meal is commissioner for general for the united nations relief and works agency for palestinian refugees and he joins us on skype from brussels good to have you on as we've been reading those statistics there it's a large number of palestinian refugees who seem to have been displaced several times can you give us an idea or describe their situation particularly the ones who
2:41 pm
were in syria yes it is human terms major tragedy that of course one has to be integrated into the wider disaster of the syrian conflict but what is unique to the situation of palestine refugees in syria is that we are dealing with another generation of palestinians with through the trauma of displacement and loss loss of relatives friends neighbors but also of their birth a property and their livelihoods and i think this is a trauma that sits particular with young people in the community who have heard of the stories of their grandparents and parents in forty eight and sixty seven and realize how deeply the displacement impacts a community there are of course multiple individual stories in the middle of this and i'm very impressed at the same time by the strength of the students in risk will see throughout syria were shown such determination in the pursuit of their
