Arab News

A delegation headed by the Lebanese caretaker Minister of the Displaced, Issam Sharafeddine, arrived in Syria to discuss with Syrian authorities the repatriation of the Syrian refugees in Lebanon.

The delegation will be meeting with Syrian officials, including the Minister of Interior, to discuss a plan aiming at returning the Syrian refugees to their country in “a safe and dignified” way.

Shaarafeddine had earlier announced that Lebanon is working on a plan to repatriate 15,000 Syrian refugees to Syria every month.

He said that shelters will be established to receive the displaced in their villages in Syria, while the UNHCR and rights groups considered that the repatriation to Syria would be unsafe.
