Arsal, Lebanon, flight from Syria, November 2013

We drove from Beirut up to Arsal this morning to talk with refugees fleeing the latest offensive in Qalamoun, Syria. Women and men lined up separately to get information and basic supplies like blankets and cooking stoves from UNHCR and other organizations such as the Danish Refugee Council. It was cold in the shade

and there was already snow along the mountain tops but these new arrivals were not complaining. This photo was taken facing the Syrian border.
