SYRIA By midnight the buses have started to arrive in Damascus, the capital city of Syria. Ten buses filled with worn out Iraqis fleeing from Baghdad will arrive tonight. Family, relatives and friends flock around, embracing and greeting them, while the refugees collect together their scanty luggage. Their heaviest burden is the memories and experiences of the war in their homeland. At it’s peak, as many as 50,000 refugees arrived in Syria every month. At the beginning of 2010, between 750,000 - 1 million Iraqis settled there, making it one of the largest urban refugee populations in the world.
