17,000 Lebanese refugees have fled into Syria in the past four days.
But getting out of Lebanon has become increasingly difficult. Israel has already blocked the borders and destroyed the airport.
And now very few drivers are willing to take their taxis on to the roads.
The price of a journey from Beirut to Damascus is normally SP 500 for a seat ($10). That has rocketed to SP 5000 ($50). And the journey takes six hours instead of the usual two and a half.
