MOSCOW, July 23 (Itar-Tass) — More than 18,000 Syrian refugees have found shelter in Lebanon in recent days, a source at the Moscow office of the International Committee of the Red Cross told Itar-Tass on Monday.
“In the past two days over 18,000 Syrians have crossed the border with Lebanon, and the refugee flow is unlikely to decrease. Though many of them have found shelter at their relatives and friends all across Lebanon, communities in the Bekaa Valley will probably have to receive thousands of refugees,” the Moscow office of the International Committee of the Red Cross said.
“As soon as the Lebanese Red Cross assessed the scale of displacement, it sent an emergency medical team on three ambulances to the Masna border crossing to provide people with medical aid and water,” the International Red Cross Moscow office went on to say.
“The International Red Cross has recently sent another few medical workers to reinforce the team and has started distributing essentials among the refugees. A total of three hundred families have already received the relief aid,” the International Red Cross Moscow office said.
At present, the International Red Cross and the Syrian Arab Red Crescent Society have delivered aid to over 600,000 people who have fled violence in various parts of Syria.
The Moscow-based office of the Red Cross said that the International Committee of the Red Cross would provide relief aid in cooperation with the Syrian Arab Red Crescent Society. Despite the difficult situation, about 50 employees of the International Committee of the Red Cross, including 12 foreigners, continue working in the country.
