After drowning near Algerian Wahran coast | Bodies of Syrian refugees are being moved to Syrian borders

SOHR activists have reported that the bodies of ten Syrian refugees are being moved towards the Syrian borders from Rafik Al-Hariry airport in Beirut, after they drowned near the coasts of Algerian Wahran city.

According to reliable SOHR sources, one of the victims hail from Lattakia and the rest are from Ain Al-Arab (Kobani) area in eastern Aleppo countryside.

In a statement to SOHR, the representative of the Autonomous Administration in Lebanon “Abd Al-Salam Ahmed” said that the bodies of ten Syrian refugees from Kobani city have reached Rafik Al-Hariry Airport in Beirut coming from Algeria, after they drowned.

Ahmed explained that the human smugglers shifted their focus to Algeria as the station to start towards Europe, for those who seek migration.

He added that the bodies are being moved from Algeria, passing through Doha, and are going to be deported during the next few days.

The Lebanese Red Crescent moved the victims to the point of borders with Syria in Al-Arida area, and handed them to the Syrian Red Crescent, which would in turn hand them to the Kurdish Red Crescent.
