Palestinian Uruguayans (Arabic: فلسطينيو أوروغواي‎) are Uruguayan citizens of Palestinian descent or Palestine-born people residing in Uruguay. There are approximately 5000 Uruguayans with Palestinian ancestry, mostly living on the Brazilian border.[1] Most of them in Chuy, where they run their own association,[2] others in Rivera.[1]

The majority of Palestinian Uruguayans are Muslim,[1] with a tiny Christian minority.
