Description : Those who could not find accommodation due to the large number of refugees in the village of Aaarsal, have set up tents in the courtyard of a mosque under construction.
Like many other people affected by the fighting, they continue to depend on humanitarian assistance.
The ICRC distributed essential assistance since January 2012 to Syrian refugees in the Bekaa Valley, including food rations, mattresses, blankets, hygiene items, kitchen sets and other household items.
