Refugee on PA TV: We left following leaders' promise absence would be temporary

Sadek Mufid, a resident of the Burj Al-Barajneh refugee camp in Lebanon, left Dir Al-Qasi (Acre region) in 1948. He was interviewed on PA TV's weekly program entitled Returning. Each program focuses on a different refugee camp:
     "We headed first from Dir al-Qasi [northern Israel] to Rmaich [Lebanon], considering what they (Arab leaders) said at the time: 'By Allah, in a week or two, you will return to Palestine.' The Arab armies entered Palestine, along with the Arab Liberation Army. We left - we and those who fled with us - and we all headed for Lebanon. Some people came to Rmaich and others came to the villages on the border, such as Ein Ibl and also to Bint Jbeil. People scattered. And we have about 11 or 15 [refugee] camps in Lebanon."
