It is unclear whether you are asking >from the point of view of them being
enemy aliens or being Jews. For instance, in the UK, enemy aliens were
interned in the Isle of Man - and many of these were Jews.

France didn't fall to the Germans until mid-1940, when the Vichy Govt would
have come into effect. It would seem that the Allies invaded and
installed Free French governments when the Vichy governments in those
countries started assisting German forces.

I would have thought given that Lebanon and Syria were French colonies in
1940, this is something that you are most likely to find in French on a
French website or Government Archive.
