UN: Lebanon may need camps for flood of Syrian refugees

Published: 02.09.13, 14:10 / Israel News

Lebanon should consider setting up transit centers to absorb the waves of refugees fleeing neighboring Syria and may have to establish formal refugee camps if the influx continues, a United Nations refugee official said.

 

The tiny and fragile Mediterranean state already hosts 260,000 refugees - equivalent to 6.5% of its population - and has sought to absorb them in homes and communities, fearing large camps of Sunni Muslim Syrians could inflame sectarian tensions still smoldering from its own 1975-1990 civil war.
