Over 100 palestinian families fled syria to 2 Lebanon camps

Over 100 Palestinian refugee families fled from the Yarmouk palestinian camp in Damascus to Lebanon and are being housed at 2 camps in north Lebanon : The Baddawi and Nahr al bared Palestinian refugee camps, National News Agency reported on Wednesday.

“60 % are housed at the Baddawi camp and 40 % at the Nahr al Bared,” NNA added.

A protest will be held in front of the United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) office in Beirut on Thursday to demand aid to the Palestinian refugees that have fled the Syria unrest to Lebanon.

“Twenty people from Yarmuk (in Damascus) arrived at my house, among them children, women and elderly people” on Monday, said Umm Khaled, 50, herself a long-time Palestinian resident of Baddawi.

“The living room has been turned into a bedroom. There’s no room to sit. There are mattresses even in the corridor,” said Umm Khaled who already has been hosting another 40 palestinian refugees from Syria.

Rabih Damess who heads a Lebanese-Palestinian refugee committee said on Wednesday:

“The situation of these families is disastrous. Most left all their belongings behind when they fled their homes n Syria.”

“I am sharing a single room with six Palestinian families from Syria. There’s around 50 of us. I fled Yarmuk with my children, but my husband stayed behind,” said Umm Ahmed, 45, who arrived in Baddawi on Monday.

“We left and we took a bus to the Syrian border with Lebanon. We saw hundreds of families waiting to cross the frontier,” said Umm Amr, 35, another palestinian refugee from Syria.

Thousands of Palestinians entered Lebanon following the bombardment for the first time on Sunday of Yarmouk refugee camp by the Syrian warplanes

UNRWA reported that at least half of Yarmuk’s population of more than 112,000 had fled the violence .

For many of these Palestinians it is a painful journey, reminding them of what their ancestors experienced 64 years ago when they were forced to evacuate their homes following the creation of the state of Israel.

“Our motto now is no longer a return to Palestine, but to Yarmuk,” said 35-year-old Amna.

UNRWA spokeswoman Hoda Samra described the situation of the Palestinians as “catastrophic,” Samra said her agency has received less than 10 % of the funds pledged to help the “10,000 Palestinians who have arrived earlier in Lebanon from Syria.

MP Robert Ghanem who heads the Administrative and Justice Parliamentary Committee told Future television on Wednesday said that the influx of Syrian and Palestinian refugees into Lebanon have become a social and political “time bomb.”

“Lebanon is not capable of sheltering all the refugees,” MP Ghanem said.

    Why don’t these Palestinians go to Jordan ? Why Lebanon ? Jordan’s population is already 70% Palestinian and there they could work and live is a more decent way than a Lebanon where they are controlled and not allowed to work. Adding to that they are not welcome by most of the Lebanese, while in Jordan they are almost at Home !

          Hannibal Mahdi is a typical Hezbollah operative/terrorist.. When cornered with facing the truth they shoot and blow up their subject. that’s they only they know how to shut people off. they use the slogans of resistance and hide behind it. But its now all open and many arabs and lebanese who sided with them first are aware of their schems and their plans. they’re nothing but bunch of thugs and terror network nothing less but more like gangs of corrupt hezbollah leaders starting with Hezbollah. Everytime Hezbollah wants to send us via TV subliminal messages of how we can be quiet or else.. how his majesty planning the life of lebanese and how they should live according to his waliet al faqih.  they complain about wahabis but wahabis wants islam now. Hezbollah learned can’t do that overnight. so you start converting strong minded idiots like Aoun and they have succeeded. If they can do that to Geagea they would treat him like a king. they have converted many sunnis in tripoli and other areas like Sida with their slave boy Saad. SSNP is a given of course so what’s left to fight hardly anyone to be honest..

        Hey mahdi, I must admit that you are real Tosser, and unfortunately there are thousands of Tossers like you in Lebanon who enjoy enforcing their opinions and theories on others. Your mentality is “either my way or the highway”! If the majority of Lebanese do not want to be referred to as arabs, then so be it. I for one know for a fact that I’m not an arab, and I am more Lebanese than the Cedar Tree itself (PBUI). If you come from a filthy and scummy race, its not our problem. It does not give you the right to degrade or belittle others. We, the Lebanese from all sects are a superior race. iranians, syrians palestinians, israelies, jordanians, turks, arabs, persians etc etc are all beneath us, so get used to it!!

    Mahmoud Abbas is right in saying the Palastenian refugees should go to the territories where they belong with their compatriots and why aren’t the Syrian refugees going to the territorities liberated by the so called FSA, after all isn’t what this glorious revolution is all about or could it be that they are running away from the FSA?

    • FreetheME

      Running away from the FSA, no Persistent, the media tells it otherwise. Especially Yalibnan. Apparently, most of the refugees are in support of the Free Syria Terrorist. Apparently.

      • Prophettttt

        Yalibnan is not considered a media outlet,It is sort of a blog. One has to be very stupid to rely on blogs for credible News.

    Thousands of Palestinians  will move from Syria to Lebanon,and non of them will ever return.Their camps are either destroyed ,or about to be destroyed, and no one  expects these camps to be rebuilt anytime soon,and not sooner than Syrian cities.
    Palestinians never learn their lessons. They should never be involved in the Syrian conflict. They should never be involved in any conflict that may take place in countries which hosted them. 
    Palestinian refugees living in Syria  had  a much better life than those who live in Lebanon. Why can’t they stay neutral? Stupid leaderships will always take stupid decisions,and the poor refugees are always the ones to pay the price.
    Now, it becomes Lebanon’s problem.Like we don’t have enough problems already.

      It is simple sectarian thinking… Although Iran is their only support (with weapons and moral but yet to see it militarily) they still side with Sunnis being Sunni… It is the reality of the MidEast and it is a sad one. Their first enemy is the Arabs as they denied them all type of help. As a matter of fact they (khalijis) are boycotting all Lebanese businesses and they are sending a message either our side or you starve. Since 50% of the Lebanese do not want Iran’s dough for obvious reasons I know of very successful businesses who are going under as we speak. 
      We have ONLY two choices:
      1. Side with the Iranian axis and face off the big powers… and may be starve.
      2. Side with the Khalijis and the US plan and prosper but become stooges and allow the Palestinians to accept the measly peace settlement and absorb the Palestinians as a permanent solution… and may be prosper.
      I see one more solution… and it is my favorite… become neutral and create a strong national army and refuse all dealings with the outside. That is the best one if we want to avoid bloodshed. To accomplish that we need to get rid of all and I mean ALL current politicians, Good and Bad and start interviewing the young generation for candidates who have no ties whatsoever to the current idiots mis-running the country.
