U.N.-Registered Syrian Refugees Triple In Four Months To 112,000 | The United Nations High Commission on Refugees (UNHCR) said the number of registered Syrian refugees in Lebanon and Turkey tripled to 112,000 in the four months since April as the civil war against Bashar al-Assad’s government intensified. Many of the Syrians fled fighting with nothing, leaving behind dead family members. They are now depending on U.N. relief as their status in Turkey becomes seemingly more permanent. Four of five of the 33,400 refugees in neighboring Jordan also registered since April. The total number of refugees is likely higher than UNHCR’s figures because people often don’t register until they run out of resources.
