  • Located 1.5km south of Tyre.
  • The French government originally built the camp in 1939 for Armenian refugees.
  • Palestinians from the Acre in the Galilee came to the camp in the 1950s and the Armenians moved to the Anja area.
  • Because of its relatively small size and location, the camp was spared much of the violence throughout the civil war.
  • Residents generally work in seasonal agricultural construction.
  • Housing consists of concrete block shelters, some of which were built by the refugees themselves.
  • The water, sewerage and storm water systems were rehabilitated between 2007-2008.
