Syrian Opposition Coalition President Hadi al-Bahra today called upon the international community to condemn Lebanese Hizballah’s ongoing bombardment of the Syrian refugees in the city of Arsal.  

The Syrian Opposition Coalition has delivered a letter to the United Nations Security Council calling for an immediate cessation of fighting and requesting protection of vulnerable Syrian refugees. Syrian refugees are currently trapped in the city and over ten have died over the past two days as Hizballah shelling has intensified. 

President al-Bahra said, “Hizballah is launching an assault against defenseless women and children refugees. They are setting the stage for greater escalation and a massacre. These refugees have nowhere else to go.  Immediate steps must be taken to deescalate the fighting and protect the Syrian refugees in Lebanon.”
