The Higher Defence Council announced in mid-April that informal settlements built by Syrian refugees with material
other than timber and plastic sheeting must be dismantled before June 9, 2019. Following the announcement, a decision
was taken by the Arsal Municipality in cooperation with the Lebanese Armed forced (LAF) to enforce the announcement
made by the Higher Defence Council. Arsal is a remote town in the Bekaa Valley in Northern Lebanon, that has
embraced and welcomed the largest number of Syrian refugees regardless of the negative effects the displacement has
had on all the aspects of the town. This decision by the Higher Defence Council will have an impact on around 4,000
households who live in informal tent settlements (ITS) built with material other than timber and plastic in Arsal (Rose1,
2019). The objective of this operation is to provide emergency shelter, NFIs, food, and WASH assistance to 561 vulnerable
households in Arsal who are at risk of evacuation and directly affected by the Lebanese Armed Forces’ decision to
demolish their current shelters. Arsal is a remote town in the Bekaa Valley in Northern Lebanon


The LRC will assist the households by ensuring their transportation and their belongings from the semi-permanent ITS
to the temporary shelter, providing them with the basic needs. As for the dismantlement of the semi-permanent ITS,
LRC will pay for daily workers to help the households to remove the debris resulting from the dismantlement.
