No escape from despair for displaced Syrians

Refugees in Golan Heights say they escaped conflict only to endure deplorable conditions in camps meant to help them.

    Many Syrian refugees who fled conflict in their homeland have endured deplorable conditions in camps that were meant to help them.

    In a refugee camp in the Golan Heights, a region occupied by Israel, Syrians say they escaped bombardment only to find more despair, suffering from a severe lack of food, water and medical treatment.
