On Monday, a fire broke out in a refugees’ camp in the Beqaa area in Eastern Lebanon, killing two Syrian refugees.

Lebanese media channels reported that a fire broke out in a camp for refugees in the village of Yammoune of Baalbek, burning about 50 tents and killing two refugees.

The media channels mentioned that firefighting teams of the Lebanese Civil Defense managed to stop the fire amidst blocked vision due to heavy smoke.

Earlier, Lebanese people burned a camp for Syrian refugees after a disagreement with Syrian young men in the Akkar area in Northern Lebanon.

Lebanese authorities frequently detained Syrian refugees for different accusations, while the refugees suffer from harsh humanitarian conditions. About 110,00000 Syrian refugees reside in Lebanon, according to the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees.
