Lebanese Minister: We Must Take Care of Syrian Refugees

Lebanese Welfare Minister Wal Abu-Faor said, over the weekend, that Lebanon must take care of Syrian refugees who have entered Israel's neighbor. Last week, the country's relief committee announced that it was stopping part of the services to the refugees due to a lack of funding.

Speaking during a visit to southern Lebanon, Abu-Faor said, "Lebanon should not neglect its obligations to the refugees, as this is a moral and humanitarian issue before it is a political issue."
