Syrian refugees in Lebanon

"Unlike in Jordan and Turkey, there are no refu­gee camps in Lebanon. Instead, those displaced by the Syrian war are mostly living with locals or renting houses in nearly 1,000 communities across the country." "Local authorities said most refugees in Baalbek are Sunnis, though there are many Shiites and other minorities present, too, and nearly all either support the Syrian regime or say they have no opinion." "Abu Ibrahim, a Sunni man from Damascus who is resolute in his support of Assad, said those responsible for exacerbating sectarianism in his country could "go to hell." " (thanks Amir)
