Number of Palestinian Refugees from Syria in Lebanon Goes Down

28,598 Palestinian refugees have been taking shelter in Lebanon in 2018, according to UNRWA statistics, with a remarkable decrease from previous years.

UNRWA data estimated that until December 2016, 31,850 Palestinian refugees had sought shelter in Lebanon, down from 80,000 in early 2013 and 53,077 in April 2014.

In recent reports, AGPS said the number of Palestinians who fled war-torn Syria to Lebanon has dramatically shrunk back over the past few years.

The decrease has been attributed to the mistreatment and crackdowns perpetrated against the refugees in the Lebanese territories, where they have also been denied the right to legal visas, refugee documents, safe accommodation, basic services, relief assistance, free education and healthcare, and access to the local labor market.

A decision issued by the Lebanese authorities in early May 2014 denied the Palestinians of Syria the right to freely enter the Lebanese territories, in an attempt to rein in refugee influx from Syria.

90% of Palestinian families from Syria sheltered in the Lebanese regions of Beirut, AlBekaa, Sidon, Tripoli, Tyre, and Chouf have been enduring extreme poverty as a result of the high rates of unemployment and absence of relief assistance.
