Displaced Palestinian Families in Lebanon Return to Syria

A number of Palestinian families who fled war-torn Syria to Lebanon have returned to Syria after anti-government protests have reached a peak in the Lebanese territories.

The price leap, dire socio-economic conditions, and delays in the transfer of UNRWA aids have forced dozens of families to return to the tension-stricken country.

Over 80% of Palestinians from Syria in Lebanon depend on UNRWA aids for survival.

Palestinians from Syria in Lebanon continue to express deep concern over their fate in the midst of the large-scale protests sweeping the Lebanese territories for over 40 days to topple the incumbent government.

Activists have called on UNRWA, the Palestinian Authority, and all other concerned parties to opt for an emergency plan and set relief assistance mechanisms in favor of Palestinian refugee families, most of whom have kept indoors over security concerns.

Palestinian refugees from Syria are reported to lack legal status in Lebanon. The absence of a specific legislation addressing their unique situation along with their ambivalent legal status and the inhospitality shown by local authorities combine to make life unbearable for Palestinian refugees in Lebanon.

The price leap, steep rental fees, expensive education charges, and lack of access to the local labor market, along with the absence of relief aids, have made the situation worse.

Earlier this year, Lebanon's labor ministry has clamped down on businesses employing foreigners without valid work permits, including Palestinian refugees from Syria.

Activists have condemned the crackdown as a mere pretext to pressure refugees to return to the war-torn country, as amid an economic downturn casts, foreigners are increasingly being portrayed as stealing jobs from the local population. However, this is a misleading forgone conclusion.

Nearly 28,000 Palestinians from Syria have sought refuge in Lebanon, where they have been enduring exacerbated living conditions and subjected to a precarious legal status.
