Since the onset of the revolutionary movement in Syria, exactly in the mid of March 2011,
and after the aggravation of security and military oppressive operations; the Syrians started to
leave their homes behind to find more secure and stable places inside Syria. Whereas others
chose to seek refuge from violence at other foreign states such as Turkey, Jordan, Lebanon or
Egypt, which are the neighboring countries that received most Syrian refugees. Human Rights
Organizations and other humanitarian institutions started to deal with the Syrian refugees’
issues and conditions in an attempt to present recommendations that would have a positive
impact on their cause, particularly about the case of the refugees who are living under
deplorable conditions and lack the simplest means of survival.
