Palestinian refugees north of Syria appeal to Erdogan to step in

 Gaza,(DRAH.ps)-- Palestinians from Syria in Deir Ballout Camp, on the Syrian-Turkish borders, continue to rally for the second month, protesting their abject living conditions and lack of vital services in the poorly-equipped camp.

 The displaced refugees appealed to the Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and NGOs to secure their safe access to Turkey and grant them a safer shelter away from the so-called “Snakes Valley”.

 “The safety of our children depends on you”, said the refugees, addressing Erdogan.

 They further called on the international community and human rights NGOs to rally round them.

 350 Palestinian families who have sought shelter in Deir Ballout Camp after they were displaced from Yarmouk Camp, south of Damascus, and 75 other families taking refuge in al-Shabiba refugee camp, in Izaz, in Aleppo’s outskirts, have been struggling for survival in the poverty-stricken area
