Syrian Refugee Movement in Lebanon

Today, we count over 450 000 registered Syrian refugees living in Lebanon. Hiding behind this staggering number are women and men who´se lives have been broken. Lebanon has faced the influx of hundreds of thousands of people fleeing the conflict in Syria for over two years. The country is still plagued by the bloody revolution against President Bashar al-Assad, who started a civil war, which killed at least 94,000 people according to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.

Unlike Turkey, Jordan and Iraq, the Syrian refugees are scattered among the Lebanese rather than being housed in camps. Lebanon itself is becoming increasingly more unstable due to the Syrian crisis, as evidenced by the recent violent tensions in Tripoli,  the country´s second largest city.
