The apartheid against Palestinians in Lebanon is getting worse – but since Israel isn’t involved, no one bothers to pretend to be in solidarity with them.
Yasser Ali, a member of the General Secretariat of the Popular Conference for Palestinians Abroad, warned of “the specter of famine” in Palestinian camps in Lebanon.
He stated that the unemployment rate in the camps that Palestinians are forced to live in worsened from 56% to 65% in 2019 and the poverty rate worsened from 65% to 80%.
Palestinians in Lebanon are barred from some 73 categories of jobs in Lebanon, which is why their unemployment and poverty rates are so high.
