Abstract: The aim of this paper is to trace back the history of the Palestinian refugees’ camps in Syria from 1948 until today. It also aims to investigate the fate of such camps amidst of the so-called Arab Spring. Despite their hardship as diaspora, Palestinian refugees in Syria worked hard to manage their lives, with help from Syrian Government and United Nations Relief and Work Agency (UNRWA). Since 2011, Researchers found that Palestinian refugee camps witnessed various military actions from both the Syrian Army and oppositions groups. These actions resulted in the killing, imprisonment, and dispersal of most Palestinian refugees. In addition, their dispersal took place either inside Syria to neighboring countries or other parts of the World. Researchers believe that Palestinian refugees should peacefully return to their camps in Syria and one day they will exercise the return to their homeland in Palestine according to United Nations resolutions. Finally, United Nations has failed to implement durable solutions for Palestinian refugees, resulting in chronic suffering and displacement in various forms.
