Syrian refugees flee from the Lebanese eastern town of Arsal on their way to cross back into Syria, as they ride in the back of a pickup truck with their belongings at the Lebanese border crossing point of Masnaa, eastern Bekaa Valley, Lebanon, Thursday, Aug. 7, 2014. Up to 150 cars packed with Syrian refugees were seen leaving Arsal. A security official in eastern Lebanon said arrangements were made for them to cross back into Syria through the border crossing. It was not immediately clear where in Syria the refugees were going, but many may have been fleeing the violence in Arsal for areas inside their country where there has been less fighting recently.
