Minister of Defense, Yaacoub Sarraf, said on Saturday that "refugees' rights matter to us; however, we will stand against any terrorist or security attack that would crack our national unity and coexistence."
"Terrorists will not dare to enter to our territories due to the official, civil and popular embracement of the Lebanese Army," Sarraf stated in wake of yesterday's clashes in Arsal between the Lebanese army and extremists.
"When we warned about the issue of Syrian refugees and camps' conditions, some of the Lebanese counterparts accused us of inhumanity," he went on, emphasizing the sacredness of Lebanon's security and sovereignty.
The Minister wondered about the rising number of infiltrated terrorists inside the refugee camps, despite the international and humanitarian care accorded to said camps.
