"But he stressed that the Lebanese should be aware of the great danger that this issue represents on their future."
Beirut, April 25 - Describing the Syrian refugees' issue as an Arab plight, the Lebanese government Friday said that the people should be aware of the threat that this issue represents.

Lebanese Social Affairs Minister Rachid Derbas also said that the randomly displacement of the Syrians make this issue a hard one to control as the Lebanese authorities do not have a complete control on the issue, Xinhua reported

There is no way we can control the displacement in Lebanon unless the refugees are given a more humanitarian shelter and at the same time be under strict control on the border regions, he added.

He explained that the government tried to convince the international organisations of erecting camps in the border regions with Syria in the Bekaa and the north, but they have always refused under the pretext of security and these regions are under continuous danger.

The minister expressed concern that the international community has turned Lebanon into a container for the Syrian refugees who feel safe and secured among us.

But he stressed that the Lebanese should be aware of the great danger that this issue represents on their future.

Lebanon hosts over one million refugees, according to the latest UN report on Syrian refugees .
