Syrian refugees heading home for healthcare

Cost of treatment is forcing some to seek medical help from the same government that inflicted their injuries.

    Amnesty International has warned that many of the more than one million Syrian refugees in Lebanon are in desperate need of healthcare, with most unable to afford treatment.

    The situation has forced some to make difficult choices, including taking the risk of heading back to their home country, devastated by years of conflict.

    As a result, some refugees are receiving medical help from the same government that inflicted their injuries.
