Free Patriotic Movement (FPM) leader, MP Gebran Bassil, on Wednesday said that 109 Syrians entered Lebanon coming from Cyprus without the approval of Lebanon’s Ministries of Foreign Affairs, Interior, Defense, as well as Lebanon’s General Security. “Who has approved to let them in? This question addressed to the authorities mentioned above. We have been endeavoring to repatriate refugees to Syria and fighting against Europe and the whole world for their return. Who dares to audaciously agree with a European state to repatriate scores of them to Lebanon?” Bassil exclaimed. “No one can convince us that they’ve been transferred back to the Syrian borders,’ Bassil added, recounting the means by which Syrian refugees are usually smuggled back into Lebanese territories. “We are very familiar with the immense funding and coercion involved. This is a crime against the country, and its perpetrators are responsible for the nation’s security,’ Bassil concluded.
