Assyrians in Lebanon are people of Assyrian origin residing in Lebanon. Assyrians are a Semitic people who speak Mesopotamian Aramaic dialects and originate from Iraq. [1] There are an estimated 40,000 to 80,000 Iraqi Assyrian refugees in Lebanon. The vast majority of them are undocumented, with a large number having been deported or put in prison. [2][3][4] They belong to various denominations, including the Assyrian Church of the East, Chaldean Catholic Church, and Syriac Catholic Church.
