Newly arrived Syrian refugees build a shelter on a piece of land hired to them in the town of Chtaura, in the Bekaa Valley, Lebanon. There are no official refugee camps in Lebanon as the government refused to allow for their construction because of the long history of the Palestinian camps in the country. Home to 200 families. Local farmer charges each family pay $350 for a plot. More refugee arrive every night.
