Winter Storm Huda in Syria

11 January 2015

Winter storm Huda (Zeina in Lebanon) hit the Middle East on Wednesday, 7 January, bringing sub-zero temperatures, high winds, rain and snow. The storm inflicted further suffering on 480,000 Palestine refugees in Syria struggling to survive their fourth year of conflict and for those now living in displacement in Lebanon and Jordan. Over 10,000 displaced Palestine refugees in Syria have taken refuge in UNRWA collective shelters, enduring harsh winter conditions in classrooms and crowded tents.
