Rebuilding Nahr al-Bared, the northern Palestinian refugee camp devastated by a three-month conflict between the army and Islamist militants, will be one of the largest humanitarian projects ever undertaken by UNRWA, the UN’s Palestinian Relief Agency. The project will only pertain to the “old camp,” the square kilometer inside the UNRWA-designated boundary, rather than the extended “new camp” to the north, where UNRWA has no jurisdiction, but which also suffered extensive damage in the conflict earlier this year.
