"Another major issue in Lebanon is the refugees from Syria. And this is a big, real, serious crisis. The media unfortunately is not talking about it. We have officially 1.2 million refugees from Syria, but this is not the right number. This is the number for the refugees living in camps. Similar to the Palestinian camps, but not as well organized, because the foreign NGOs did not really look into the refugees in Lebanon. So it's mainly locals, villagers, helping, giving them food, blankets when the winter started. Because most of them are living close to the border with Syria, so it's in the mountains and you have snow."

In this video, a Lebanese national discusses the Syrian refugees in Lebanon.
