Palestinian Refugee Child Falls to Death from Building in Lebanon

Palestinian Refugee Child Falls to Death from Building in Lebanon

A Palestinian child fell to his death a few days earlier down an elevator shaft in Nahar AlBared Camp for Palestinian refugees, north of Lebanon.

The child Malek Alya fell from the fourth floor of the under-construction Naji AlAli medical complex as he was playing with his friends.

Palestinian refugees from Syria (PRS) in Lebanon are grappling with increased hardship and vulnerability, due to long-term displacement and difficult socio-economic conditions.

The recent political instability in the country, coupled with the consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic, has made survival difficult for Palestinian refugees.

According to UNRWA, 87% of PRS live in poverty in the Lebanese territories.

Over 470,000 refugees are registered with UNRWA in Lebanon. About 45 per cent of them live in the country’s 12 refugee camps. Conditions in the camps are dire and characterized by overcrowding, poor housing conditions, unemployment, poverty and lack of access to justice.

Palestinians in Lebanon do not enjoy several important rights; for example, they cannot work in many professions and cannot own property (real estate). 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.
