Peace Appeal by Syrian Refugees in Lebanon
Operazione Colomba has been present in Lebanon since September 2013, starting from April 2014 a permanent presence in the refugee camp and in the village of Tel Abbas, 5 kilometers from the border with Syria.
After having been subjected to threats and violence by some Lebanese locals, refugees themselves asked Operazione Colomba volunteers to live with them in the camp. A civilian and unarmed international presence is a strong deterrent against the use of violence.
Since three years the volunteers have directly shared their lives with refugees in camps in Lebanon.
This has enabled Operazione Colomba to collect and be spokesman of the demands made by Syrian refugees, representatives of other refugees, who have fled the war in Syria not to be forced to fight or be killed.
