Despair And Dread Grip Syrian Refugees On Election’s Eve

by Wochit 0:50 mins

A little over a week ago, Syrian refugees began to notice men going around the camps in Lebanon's Bekaa Valley, asking who wanted to vote for president and taking down names. The men identified themselves as members of a Lebanese political party allied to Syria's President Bashar al-Assad. Their presence was a reminder to the more than one million Syrian refugees in Lebanon that they are still within the reach of a Damascus government that has appeared increasingly confident in its ability to handle a three-year-old rebellion. A week before a vote all but certain to give Assad a third term, many of Lebanon’s refugees are coping with the realization that a conflict they thought would end in months could grind on for many more years.
