With the refugee crisis in Syria over, Al Jazeera and other media outlets are looking to provide aid to those who fled there.
Here is how.
What is Syria’s conflict?
In Syria, a conflict that began in 2011 with a military coup, has morphed into a civil war that has killed millions and driven tens of millions from their homes.
The war is the third largest humanitarian disaster in the world, according to the UN.
What has changed since 2011?
The Syrian civil war has claimed the lives of more than 100,000 people, according the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.
More than 2.7 million people have been displaced from their home countries, according an estimate by the International Organisation for Migration.
“We are here to help,” said one Syrian man, speaking in Arabic.
“Help me, help everyone.
Don’t give us any help.”
The UN says the conflict has displaced more than three million people, displaced more, or displaced more people than in the previous 15 years combined.
Who are the refugees in Syria?
According to the Syrian Red Crescent, there are some 70,000 Syrians living in refugee camps in the country.
The vast majority of the Syrians living there are men, and many are single parents who have nowhere else to go.
The majority of those living in camps are Syrian Christians.
Are there any Syrian refugees currently living in Lebanon?
There are many Syrians living across the border in Lebanon, with many in Lebanon’s Bekaa Valley, near the Syrian border, said Mohammad Ali, a Syrian activist based in Beirut.
Syrian activists and refugees in Lebanon are calling for a ceasefire and the release of all those in detention.
In January, Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri called on Syria to halt the fighting.
Hariri was the first leader of the country to call for a truce since the start of the conflict.
In October, the Lebanese army declared a state of emergency in response to the war.
“The war has not ended,” said Ahmad Hossain, a former UN humanitarian coordinator.
“The people are still suffering.”
What do the refugees need?
According to Al Jazeera’s Nour Malas, the UN refugee agency says about 1.3 million people in Syria are facing hardship.
“For Syrians who are not in need of help, the only option left is to leave,” said Malas.
“For them, that is a huge step backwards, but it is also a big step forward.”
What are the countries involved in the Syrian conflict?
Syria is divided into five main countries: the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, Jordan, Saudi Arabia and Egypt.
The country has also had a separate, semi-autonomous administration for the Kurdish region of Syria since 2006.
Syria’s borders with Iraq and Iran are closed to both, but they remain porous, with the Syrian government often using both as transit points for smuggling.
The UN estimates that about half a million Syrians have fled Syria.
More than 5.4 million are internally displaced and about 6.6 million are displaced within Syria, according a recent report by the Syrian Centre for Policy Research.
A majority of refugees in the region are from the northern city of Aleppo, which was the heartland of the uprising against President Bashar al-Assad.
The area has been divided into enclaves by the government since 2011, with rebels and government forces fighting over control of the border.
Syria’s population of more a million people is now shrinking, with an estimated 4 million Syrians currently living outside the country, according Al Jazeera.
What are people saying about the conflict?
The Syrian government is trying to portray the conflict as a humanitarian one, and to try to keep the population at a safe level, Malas said.
“There are people who say that people are being killed by the regime, but in reality, that has not happened.”
What do refugees and displaced people in Lebanon say about the situation?
“People have a lot of fear,” Malas added.
“People are afraid to go out.
They are afraid that if they do go out they will be targeted.
People are afraid of being killed.
People feel that they are in danger of being targeted and killed.”
