Palestinian refugees celebrate Biden-Harris win, hope for relief

President-elect Biden’s win was met with jubilation and hope for a better future among many of the thousands of Palestinian refugees living in Lebanon. But the reality may not be as rosy, with many other domestic and international priorities far higher on the new administration’s list, and limited funds. Special Correspondent Leila Molana-Allen reports from Lebanon.

A clarification: This segment stated that more than 450,000 Palestinian refugees are living in Lebanon. According to the United Nations Relief and Works Agency, more than 470,000 are registered, while fewer than 200,000 reside there; 45 percent of them live in the country’s refugee camps, not “most” as was reported in the segment.
