Dire situation for Syrian refugees in Lebanon

More refugees than Lebanese live in the town of Arsal, forcing new arrivals to live in remote areas.

    Syrian refugees have now outnumbered Lebanese residents in the Lebanese border town of Arsal, forcing new arrivals to set up makeshift shelters in remote areas outside of military control.

    Refugees say they feel forgotten and neglected because they have been forced to find shelter in an area beyond the last Lebanese military checkpoint near Syria.

    They have to walk through the checkpoint and into Arsal to receive aid.

    Al Jazeera's Nisreen El-Shamayleh reports from Arsal.
