By Claudio Cordone, Director of UNRWA Affairs in Lebanon

Ten years ago today, on 20 May 2007, fighting erupted in the Nahr el-Bared camp for Palestine refugees in North Lebanon. Three months later, the camp lay in ruins, with its 27,000 residents displaced. Since then, with the support of the Lebanese Government and the international donor community, UNRWA has been engaged in its largest ever individual reconstruction project, with an estimated cost of US$ 345 million.
