UN Data: Number of Palestinian Refugees Fleeing War-Ravaged Syria to Lebanon Goes Down

The number of Palestinian refugees from war-torn Syria has seen a sharp decrease in the Lebanese territories, UN and human rights bodies have documented.

In August and September 2019, UNRWA conducted a verification exercise of PRS in Lebanon and verified the physical presence of 27,803 PRS in the country, with a remarkable decrease from previous years.

The number of PRS in Lebanon has been gradually decreasing over the past two years, and UNRWA estimates that in 2020 the country will continue to host approximately 27,700 PRS (8,450 families).

UNRWA data estimated that until December 2016 as many as 31,850 Palestinian refugees had sought shelter in Lebanon, down from 28,598 in 2019.

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.
