Fakhouri says the refugees need housing, jobs, and schools for their kids to attend.

“I cannot imagine the additional number will come here seeking settlement and definitely they need housing . They need employment. They need schooling for their kids, shelter, etc. so we have limited resources and I’m really concerned about the future influx of refugees coming to this area,” she added.
