After the Clash

These photographs were taken in Ein El Hilweh one week after an armed clash between the Joint Security Force and an Islamist group on 7 April 2017, calming on the night of 12 April 2017. Many refugees at other camps within Lebanon, particularly those near Tripoli, were displaced to Ein el-Hillweh during the civil war. The camp became the biggest camp in Lebanon, in terms of both population and area size. It was especially hard hit by violence between 1982 and 1991, which resulted in a high number of casualties and the near total destruction of the camp.
