at Al-Beddawi the road leads to Syria: Beddawi north of Tripoli,It has about 50,000 inhabitants. It has also a non-working petroleum refinery, out of order since the Lebanese civil war. Until the 1950s Beddawi was a little village surrounded with fields and had less than a 1,000 inhabitants. In 1955 the Palestinian refugees built a camp near the city and named it Beddawi camp. In 1983 the city underwent several battles between Militias and parts of it were severely damaged.

Too bad there is still instability in the Arab world. I think that after all, ordinary people suffer from these conflicts. It would be nice for everyone to live in peace and understanding, a world without wars, in unity and diversity.I'm not good at politics but it hurts when I see on TV thousands of refugees from conflict areas in the world. I think about how difficult it is to leave the village, city, country and started to leave their homeland. Uprooting is a terrible thing for me!
