Lebanon: most Syrian refugees in Lebanon want to go back when the security there improves: Red Cross

in MIDLE EAST/POLITICS by

The Head of the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) in Lebanon, Christophe Martin said Monday that 80 percent of Syrian refugees in Lebanon would like to return home once the security situation has improved, emphasizing that support for refugees in their any return to Syria will be discussed with senior Lebanese officials and with relevant international bodies and nations. In fact, in a positive way, he stated that the return of refugees to Syria would benefit the pacification and resolution of the Syrian crisis. The United Nations Commission for Refugees (UNHCR) published last month that the number of Syrian refugees registered in Lebanon fell below one million for the first time since 2014, reaching 997.905, but according to Lebanese officials the number of refugees not registered in Lebanon is more than one million, which makes the actual number of refugees in Lebanon about 2 million.
