Since their forced displacement from Palestine in 1948, the scattered Palestinian refugee community has been severely affected by pretty much all of the major conflicts that have been shaking the region, many times leading them to flee their newly established homes yet another time. Escaping the violence in their host countries, be it Kuwait or Lebanon, many of those refugees resettled in Syria, which, compared to other Arab states, was viewed as one of the most stable, and most sympathetic states towards the Palestinian refugees - until recently.
