IDMC’s estimate of the total number of IDPs in Lebanon is based on data from the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA). It primarily corresponds to Palestinians displaced in 2007 from the Nahr al-Bared refugee camp, considered to be their place of habitual residence, who have not been able to return.

Based on information published by local media, IDMC estimates that about 280 people displaced in 2007 reached a partial solution by returning to the camp in 2018.
