We extracted a document from the Palestinian embassy stating that the Palestinian refugees are refugees without a homeland and they are not entitled to return to Palestine and in the same They are not Iraqis, and they do not have the right to return to Iraq. This document was submitted to the Immigration Department collectively and includes about 150 cases, but the Immigration Department began issuing individual rejection decisions.
