The large influx of Palestinian refugees from Syria has sparked heavy competition in the Palestinian camps and gatherings in Lebanon, with longtime residents losing jobs as well as access to basic medical and educational services.Under the title of "Profiling Deprivation," the report revealed that the 42 gatherings for Palestinian refugees in Lebanon were originally inhabited by about 110 thousand residents before the outbreak of the Syrian crisis.With the influx of about 53 thousand Palestinian refugees from Syria, the camps have become overburdened, with 27 thousand new residents living in the twelve official camps. Reported forecasts expect the number of Palestinian refugees from Syria to increase to about 55 thousand in Lebanon by the end of 2014 .
