In May 2014 the Lebanese authorities put in place new requirements for Palestinian refugees from Syria trying to enter Lebanon. Many of the conditions are very difficult to meet and have the effect of denying people fleeing conflict the possibility of seeking safety in Lebanon.

It describes some of the implications for refugees and includes the accounts of several Palestinian refugees from Syria who have been directly affected.
