Syrian Refugees in Lebanon to Return to Syria

Syrian Refugees in Lebanon to Return to Syria

In remarks to Asharq Al-Awsat, Minister of the Displaced Moeen Merehbi said the Lebanese State would call on the worldwide community to increase the amount of assistance provided to both the displaced Syrians and the Lebanese society, and would reaffirm the need to ensure the appropriate conditions for the safe return of the refugees, as "the recent developments in Syria are delaying and complicating this return".

Lebanon's General Security issued a statement declaring that it "secured the safe passage of hundreds of Syrian refugees from the villages of Shebaa, Kfarchouba, and al-Habbarieh to their hometowns in Syria".

In January, Syria's Minister of Reconciliation Ali Haidar said that Syria was preparing for the return of refugees from Lebanon.

The return of Syrian refugees from Lebanon to Syria has been discussed between both governments.

Lebanon's General Security Service will supervise the transfer, said the daily, and will check their identity papers and accompany them with logistical and security measures.

Yesterday's convoy of 15 buses, adorned with posters of Syrian President Bashar Assad, was organized by the Lebanese government, with the United Nations refugee agency insisting that it had played no part in the arrangements.

The buses carried 472 refugees, including men, women, and children who voluntarily elected to return to their home country after years of living in dire conditions.

Almost one million United Nations -registered Syrian refugees now live in Lebanon, most in dire economic straits that Lebanese leaders say they can not afford to ease.

In a country of around four million Lebanese, the influx has put a strain on water and electrical infrastructure. "It is a prelude to a series of successive operations under a Syrian-Syrian coordination, and has nothing to do with the Lebanese government".
