In parking garages and informal housing south of Sidon city, Syrian refugees gathered around televisions and mobile phone screens throughout Friday night, waiting for any news of an expected international missile strike on Syria.By Saturday afternoon, these refugees were weighing what the strikes meant to them as Syrians, after the United States, France and Britain targeted Syrian targets with more than 100 missiles early in the morning, in a move that threatened to further destabilize their home country – and neighboring Lebanon. Of the seven Syrian refugees whom The Daily Star interviewed Saturday, none expressed any outright support for the strikes on Syria, despite their ostensible purpose as an attempt at deterrence in response to a deadly suspected chemical attack by the government last week.Ali lives in a makeshift housing compound outside Sidon that serves as home to dozens of other Syrian refugees, most of whom are from Homs. Alongside his neighbors, he spent all of Friday night and early Saturday morning watching TV as news broke of the missile strikes on Syria.
