Empathy ‘frozen’: Storm sweeps Syrian refugee camps in Lebanon

“What’s more frozen, refugee camps or humanity?” That is the recurring question you find being asked in the past week on social media under the hashtag of “Arsal Tastagheeth” (Arsal cries out for help).

The Lebanese mountainous border town of Arsal was covered with snow following Storm Norma, leaving Syrian refugee camps in unimaginably horrible conditions.

With temperatures between -4 to -8 degree Celsius, refugees’ tents in the Beqaa area were either flooded with water, or destroyed by snow.

According to the UN refugee agency, 151 sites that are home to some 11,000 Syrians have been heavily affected.
