At a time when Egypt witnesses a great welcome campaign for Syrian refugees on its territory, fears over the lives of thousands of defected people and oppositionists of the Syrian regime after the decision of the Lebanese public security to deport them and handing them over to the regime

The Syrian Observatory learned that the Lebanese public Security issued a new resolutions regarding the entry of the Syrian refugees into the Lebanese territory in illegal way, where the resolution states “the person will be deport and handed over to the Syrian authorities and a notification will be issued to prevent the person’s entry” for a period of up to 10 years, while the Office of the United Nations issued a statement entitled “information for the Syrians in Lebanon,” stating that the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) learned that the Lebanese authorities had recently decided to deport every Syrian who illegally entered Lebanon after the 24th of April 2019 and handing them over to the relevant Syrian immigration service”

However, reliable sources confirmed to the Syrian Observatory that the statement of the Office of the High Commissioner is only a fictitious reassurance for the Syrians, where a large number of refugees who entered in an illegal way have been deported by the Lebanese public security, amid fears for their lives due to the presence of large number of members defected of the regime of soldiers, officers, and workers in other sectors, as well as oppositionists of the Assad’s regime, where regime’s intelligence thirstily waiting for them to return and put them in their jails and liquidate them, after they were forced out of their areas in Syria and risked their lives crossing the border after paying thousands of dollars to the network of smugglers; hoping to have a dignified life away from the war in Syria, while these Lebanese resolutions come with an opposite wave in Egypt regarding the Syrian refugees, where the social media sites are trending with the hashtag “the Syrians enlighten Egypt,” which expresses their welcome for the presence of Syrians within their territory.
