They join more than 45,000 Palestinians and another 20,000 Lebanese returnees who had lived in Syria before the crisis began more than two years ago.

10 September 2013: As the political situation deteriorates in Syria, many Palestine refugees have sought shelter in Lebanon. They join a large population of refugees still displaced after the Nahr el-Bared Camp in northern Lebanon was closed in 2007. This latest influx constitutes an urgent, humanitarian crisis.

In response, the Central Emergency Response Fund (CERF) has provided a rapid response grant of US$1,500,001 million to the United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA).
