Palestine Refugees by Numbers

  • Palestinians are the largest and longest suffering group of refugees in the world. 

  • One in three refugees world wide is Palestinian. 

  • There are about 7.2 million Palestinian refugees worldwide. 

  • More than 4.3 million Palestinian refugees and their descendants displaced in 1948 are registered for humanitarian assistance with the United Nations. 

  • Another 1.7 million Palestinian refugees and their descendants, also displaced in 1948, are not registered with the UN.

  • About 355,000 Palestinians and their descendants are internally displaced i.e. inside present-day “Israel”. 

  • When the West Bank and Gaza Strip were occupied in 1967, the UN reported that approximately 200,000 Palestinians fled their homes. These 1967 refugees and their descendants today number about 834,000 persons. 

  • As a result of house demolition, revocation of residency rights and construction of illegal settlements on confiscated Palestinian owned-land, at least 57,000 Palestinians have become internally displaced in the occupied West Bank. This number includes 15,000 people so far displaced by the construction of Israel’s Annexation Wall. 

  • Such dispossession of the Palestinian population continues today.
