The civil war in Syria has driven millions of people to cross the borders into neighbouring countries and seek refuge. Since our interview with UNHCR officials in Lebanon in January 2013, (#47) the number of registered refugees in Lebanon alone has risen to 850 000. Crossing the border to neighbouring Israel is impossible, as Israel and Syria have no internationally recognised border. The ceasefire line in the Golan Heights still remains an impenetrable barrier for Syrian families torn apart by Israel‘s occupation of the area. Nonetheless, for a long time a UN mission camp, constructed with white tarpaulins in the green Golan landscape, provided medical assistance to those wounded in Syrian battles. This image from the crossing point was taken in April 2013. Two months later, in June, the camp was under fire during battles between Syrian rebels and government troops. After the incidents, Austria withdrew its UN peacekeepers.
