Many opposition activists who have been injured during violence in Syria are too scared to go to hospitals where they live.

As a result, they are turning to medical facilities in neighbouring Lebanon where private hospitals are taking them in.

Some clinics have dedicated entire floors to helping the wounded, but those who are being treated there say that while they are grateful for the help, they are counting the days until they can return home and continue their fight to overthrow the government.
