GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- At least 110 Palestinian families have fled Syria to the Gaza Strip, a refugee affairs official in Gaza said Wednesday.

Issam al-Adwan, who heads the Hamas government's refugee affairs department, said a growing number of Palestinian refugees were arriving in Gaza to escape the two-year conflict in Syria.

Al-Adwan told Ma'an that representatives of the families met with officials from the government and from UNRWA, the UN agency for Palestinian refugees.

They asked for residence, employment and food aid, al-Adwan said.

UNRWA is providing a temporary housing allowance of $125 each month to the families and the government has provided the refugees with temporary employment, the official said.

At least 1,000 Palestinians have been killed in the uprising against Syrian President Bashar Assad.

Most Palestinians fleeing refugee camps in Syria headed to Lebanon.

@ 2), Where in the hell have you been ??? ... Living under a rock ??? ... Jordan/Palestine has been at the forefront of allowing fleeing Palestinians into its borders to help them. So far, J/P has allowed (and continues to allow) fleeing Palestinians refuge, so far absorbing more than 300,000 Palestinians/other Syrians who've fled. J/P's King Abdullah II is a HIGHLY-admirable monarch doing the best he can. Wake UP. @ 3), Damn WELL-said even though they should all go to Jordan/Palestine.

How can Palestinians be the masters of the Jewish State? They can't even rule themselves with any degree of understanding, justice, democracy, and without corruption. There are essentially three Palestinian states:Gaza,the West Bank and Jordan. Which one will be the master of Israel? And how will they go about it? I am sure the Israelis are not afraid.200 to 400 nuclear devices can bring much comfort to the Jewish State along with the power of the IDF..

@4 In October, Prime Minister Abdullah Ensour announced the plan in the Arabic-language daily Al-Hayat, "Jordan has made a clear and explicit sovereign decision to not allow the crossing to Jordan by our Palestinian brothers who hold Syrian documents."
