Refugees and displacement in Syria
On 30 April 2020, UNHCR estimated 5.6 million people had fled Syria. More than 60% of these were in Turkey, with Lebanon hosting nearly a million refugees and Jordan over 600,000. Most of these are not living in camps, with almost all of them living in urban areas.
Refugees in Turkey and Lebanon are vulnerable. Resentment is rising as their stay gets longer and the economies of their host countries worsen.
