Arsal, Lebanon

31 Dec 2012

Syrian refugees prepare for the winter in Arsal, Lebanon. The word Arsal is translated from Aramaic to mean " The Throne of God". These refugees that number in the thousands rest in no-mans land that separates Lebanon from Syria. The area is subject to air craft missile strikes mortar fire and the occasional spillover border clashes from the Syrian conflict being fought less then a mile away. The majority of the refugees I met were from Qusair and Qulamoun both towns are major conflict areas between the Syrian Army and the Opposition. The situation for these people is dire and they are in need of everything that a human would need to survive. The area is mostly populated with women and children without any medical aid or supplies from NGOs that stop at the last check point of the Lebanese Army.
