AOUN: LEBANON NO LONGER CAPABLE OF BEARING REFUGEE BURDEN

President of the Republic, General Michel Aoun, said on Tuesday that Lebanon was no longer capable of handling the growing burden of Syrian refugees on Lebanese territories.

The President's words came before the Mayor of Haret Hreik, Ziad Waked, who visited him in the company of the Municipal Council and mukhtars.

"If we are working on the return of the displaced, it's because Lebanon is no longer capable of carrying this massive burden; however, the spread of hatred and incitement IS totally unacceptable, especially that the consequences could be dire for both peoples," Aoun told the delegation.
