The number of Syrian refugees in Lebanon has reached nearly 716,000, the UN's refugee agency said Sunday.
Approximately 13,000 refugees reached Lebanon last week, reported Xinhua.
About 606,000 of the refugees have been registered so far, while more than 109,000 are still awaiting registration, the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) said.
About 200,000 Syrian refugees were registered in northern Lebanon, 206,000 in the eastern Bekaa region, 119,000 in Beirut and Mount Lebanon, and 79,000 in southern Lebanon.
Ninette Kelly, UNHCR representative in Lebanon, has said the number of Syrian refugees in Lebanon is expected to surpass one million by the end of 2013.
Lebanon has frequently called on the UN Security Council and international donors to help it shoulder the burden of housing Syrian refugees on its land.
