Over 20,500 Palestinians remain in Lebanon after fleeing the violence in Syria, including at least 3,500 who left following the latest outbreak of fighting in the Yarmouk refugee camp outside Damascus last month, according to a report released by Hamas.

About 885 Palestinians have been killed in Syria since the uprising began nearly two years ago, according to Hamas

“Many of the Palestinians are staying with relatives but we have also opened some schools in Ain al-Hilweh and one in the Jalil camp in the Bekaa due to the [recent] rain and snow,” A Haas official was quoted by Daily Star as saying .
