Wadi Khaled, an impoverished village near the northernmost corner of Lebanon lies in a valley that is surrounded on three sides by Syria.

The village is less than 30 miles away from Homs, a focal point of the Syrian uprising. Refugees from the Syrian conflict between pro-democracy protestors and the government have fled to Lebanon, but they are far from safe.
Recent incursions by Syrian troops along the border have disrupted the region and the Lebanese government has yet to issue a formal statement welcoming the refugees.

Syrian refugees, fleeing from internal strife between pro-democratic protestors and a government crackdown, set up temporary shelter in the village of Wadi Khaled, Lebanon. The village sits just a few hundred meters away from the Syrian border and less than 30 miles from a major center for the rebel uprising.

Near the village of Wadi Khaled, Lebanon, is one of the many refugee camps along the Syrian border. The camp in the front is on lebanese land while the buildings on the hill in the background are on Syrian territory. The village of Wadi Khaled is less than 30 miles from the Syrian town of Homs which has seen strong fighting in recent months.

Some Syrian refugees fleeing from heavy conflict in Homs, are now staying less than 30 miles away in the Lebanese village of Wadi Khaled. The conflict has spilled over the border on several occasions however and residents say it is not out of the ordinary to hear gunshots and see signs of the ongoing violence.
