Lebanon: Winter Storms Bring Death and Misery to Syrian Refugees

HeadlineJan 10, 2019

In Lebanon, a blanket of snow has fallen on makeshift camps for Syrian refugees, compounding the misery of thousands of people whose tents flooded with rainwater during intense winter storms over the weekend. The U.N. says flooding affected over 10,000 refugees across Lebanon, with a further 70,000 Syrians at risk. The storms claimed the life of an 8-year-old Syrian girl who fell into a river and drowned amid heavy wind and rain.
