Refugee Crisis in Lebanon: A Forgotten Toll of the Syrian Civil War
I spent my summer interning at the U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) in Beirut, Lebanon. Every morning, I walked through blast barriers and barbed wire, past hundreds of Syrian refugees waiting to register for UNHCR assistance. As the U.S. and its allies begin airstrikes in Syria, those long lines are a lasting reminder of the long-term effects of that war.
