Palestinian Refugee Camps in Lebanon | UNRWA

Some 450,000 refugees are registered with UNRWA in Lebanon, with many living in the country’s 12 refugee camps.

Palestine refugees represent an estimated ten per cent of the population of Lebanon. They do not enjoy several important rights; for example, they cannot work in as many as 20 professions. Because they are not formally citizens of another state, Palestine refugees are unable to claim the same rights as other foreigners living and working in Lebanon. Among the five UNRWA fields, Lebanon has the highest percentage of Palestine refugees living in abject poverty.

Around 53 per cent of the Palestine refugees in Lebanon live in the 12 recognized Palestine refugee camps, all of which suffer from serious problems, including poverty, overcrowding, unemployment, poor housing conditions and lack of infrastructure. Three other camps were destroyed during the course of the Lebanese Civil War, while a fourth was evacuated many years ago.

The ongoing conflict in Syria has forced many Palestine refugees from that country, including men, women and children, to flee to Lebanon in search of safety. UNRWA is working to adjust to their numbers and their needs – including for education, health care, shelter and relief.

Life in the shadows: Palestinians in Lebanon – Al Jazeera World

God Sees Everything- Thoughts

These are ghettos that the Palestinian people are forced to live in. Similar to those of the Nazis. The United Nations can’t even unite one country??? This is an absolute disgrace!!! Shame on the world! Shame on humanity!!! Now there’s the sneaky attempt to wipe out the Palestinians by lying about ISIS and DAESH coming from cams in Lebanon as Bush tried before. Now we start to see it again. Half a million Palestinians live in these camps Beddawi Camp, Burj Barajneh Camp, Burj Shemali Camp, Dbayeh Camp, Ein El Hillweh Camp, El Buss Camp, Mar Elias Camp, Mieh Mieh Camp ,Nahr el-Bared Camp , Rashidieh Camp , Shatila Camp ,Wavel Camp .

So if you hear in the media of ISIS/DAESH being present there- it is very suspicious – these are controlled zones by the Lebanese and it all becomes an excuse for the US on behalf of the Israelis to exterminate or commit genocide of the Palestinian people. Do not be deceived.
