Posted: April 11, 2013 by Rex Brynen in Lebanon, Syria

PalestinianRefugeesFromSyriainLebanon-1ANERA has just released a new report on the plight of Palestinian refugees who have fled the civil war in Syria to Lebanon.

About 85% of Palestinian refugees living in Yarmouk camp near Damascus have fled?

Over 37,000 refugees from Syria have moved into Lebanon’s already over-crowded Palestinian refugee camps?

More than half of these refugees have seen their homes in Syria destroyed?

In Lebanon over 90% have no income?

Most families live with more than 10 people crammed into a single room?

Most families depend on the generosity of other poor families to survive in Lebanon’s Palestinian refugee camps?

You’ll find the full report here.
