In 2007, Nahr el-Bared Camp (NBC) in northern Lebanon was levelled during a three-month conflict between the Lebanese Army and militant Islamist group Fatah al-Islam. All homes and businesses were completely destroyed, as well as the UNRWA Compound which housed the Agency's health clinic, schools and relief office. Nearly 27,000 persons from NBC (including some Lebanese families) were forced to abandon their homes. Since the crisis, UNRWA has been charged with meeting the humanitarian and recovery needs of the NBC displaced. Organizations including the Palestinian Red Crescent Society (PRCS) and the Lebanese Red Cross, in addition to the PLO, were active in helping UNRWA to coordinate the emergency response. The Agency is also managing the complete reconstruction of the camp, including the residences, commercial buildings, and the UNRWA Compound. This massive undertaking is being carried out in close cooperation with other UN agencies, NGOs and the Lebanese Government. Relief operations undertaken to date have included the distribution of food and non-food items and the provision of emergency and temporary shelter, water and sanitation, social, education, and health services. Final Report. January to December 2011.
