The UN warned of the implications on Palestinian refugees in Syria stemming from the country's raging sectarian conflict, Kuwaiti state news agency KUNA cited a UNRWA official as saying at a press conference.

Filippo Grandi, Commissioner General of the UN Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA) was cited as saying that, Syria's Palestinian refugees "have no clear future and live under continuous threat".

Grandi reportedly urged the international community to support an appeal by the UNRWA for $200 million to aid the more than half of Palestinian refugees from seven camps displaced by the hostilities in Syria.
