Thousands of Palestinians and human rights activists protested outside of the UN offices in Beirut Sunday, Israel Radio reported.

Palestinian refugees in Lebanon are not allowed to work in several professions and do not enjoy the health and welfare benefits that Lebanese citizens do.

The Lebanese Parliament is expected to discuss a draft of a new law which would allow Palestinian refugees in Lebanon to buy living quarters and enter the work force, according to the Israel Radio report.
