In Lebanon, discrimination and violence against Syrian refugees rose sharply in recent weeks.

Rawan Haddad with Tent Schools International says, “The situation of the refugees is sometimes better than most Lebanese. Nations do provide basic support and limited facilities for refugees. But the Lebanese below the poverty line have no one to support them.”
