Hamas Urges Lebanon: Deal Humanely with Refugees

Hamas Appeals to Lebanese Authorities to Deal Humanly with Palestinian Refugees

GAZA, (PIC)-- The refugee affairs department of the Hamas Movement appealed to the Lebanese authorities to deal with the Palestinian refugee fleeing the Syrian war on humanitarian grounds.

"While we recognize the Lebanese political fears related to the issue of the Palestinian presence, we appeal to the Lebanese authorities to deal with the issue of the Syria's Palestinians humanely and not politically" the refugee affairs department stated in a press release.

It called on the Lebanese authorities to arrange the entry of the Palestinian refugees displaced from Syria to Lebanon under the supervision of the UNRWA and the Palestinian factions, so as to ensure their safety and their presence in Lebanon temporarily due to the internal events in Syria.

It also hailed the humanitarian efforts made by the UNRWA and other relief groups to secure the needs of the displaced Palestinian refugees.
