 According to the ofcial statistics of UNRWA, around 530,000 Palestinian refugeeslive in the Syrian Arab Republic after entering Syria mainly during the followingyears: 1948 - 1956 - 1967 - 1970 -1978 - 1982 - 1991 - 2003. The vast majority of refugees ed Palestine during the rst Nakba in 1948 (estimated at approximately90%) meaning that they had been living in Syria for more than sixty-ve years whenthe current conict began and had integrated into the social fabric of the country, interms of work, matrimonial relations, business and housing, and enjoyed a number of rights under Syrian legislation: Act 260 of 1956. After the onset of protests against the regime of Syrian President Bashar al- Assad in mid-March 2011, Palestinian refugees quickly found themselves facinga people’s revolution, and while the majority chose to remain neutral and not tointerfere with the internal affairs of their host country, others aligned themselveswith one side or the other.
