Gaza Compound

Beirut Gatherings

The Gaza Compound, a former hospital complex near the Shatila Refugee Camp in Beirut, was constructed by the Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO) on land owned by third parties during the Lebanese civil war. In 1982, the PLO handed control of the compound over to the Palestinian Red Crescent Society (PRCS) who administered it as a hospital until 1985. During the civil war, a number of Palestinian families, who escaped the ‘War of the Camps’ took shelter in the vacant units in the compound and as they settled began to invite their relatives and friends to occupy the remaining vacant units. The four-building compound, never intended for accommodation purposes, currently houses a total of 262 families. Although most inhabitants are Palestinians, a recent building survey revealed an increasing number of non-Palestinians, mainly Syrians, Iraqis and Lebanese.
