Syrian refugees find shelter in Gaza Strip

At least 1,500 Syrian refugees have settled in the Gaza Strip since the start of the Syrian war.

    Syria's neighbouring countries may be struggling with the number of refugees heading their way, but one place is actively trying to attract them. 

    Up to 1,500 refugees have arrived in the Gaza Strip, the tiny coastal enclave home to 1.5 million Palestinians, since the war began nearly three years ago.

    Al Jazeera's Phil Lavelle reports from Gaza City.
