Syrian Refugees Face a Winter of Misery

Hosted by

Since rebels declared war on the al-Assad regime, more than 400,000 Syrians have fled the country. Over a million more are displaced internally. Now winter is setting in on overcrowded, makeshift camps and abandoned buildings that house formerly urban families who left most of their possessions at home. One refugee camp inside Northern Syria was strafed today by Syrian fighter planes apparently trying to hit a nearby base for the rebel Free Syrian Army.  But more Syrians have fled to Jordan than anywhere else.  Andrew Chappelle, a news producer for al-Jazeera English, recently visited the Al Zaatari refugee camp.
