BEIRUT, Oct 8 (KUNA) -- The number of Syrian refugees in Lebanon has surged into more than 85,200, the United Nations High Commissioner for refugees (UNHCR) said on Monday.
The Syrian refugees, mostly in northern Lebanon and Bekaa, are receiving aid through the efforts exerted by the Lebanese state and its UN and non-governmental organization partners, said a report issued by UNHCR.
According to the report, an estimate of 1,000 people have crossed into the northeastern border town of Wadi Khaled from Damascus, Homs and Aleppo last week.
The report revealed that the commission will begin the process of official registration on October 22 at the headquarters of Caritas in the vicinity of the coastal city of Saida, expecting the current number of refugees in the south to reach 10,000.
In addition, UNHCR expects the current tally of Syrian refugees in Lebanon to leap to 120,000 by the end of 2012.
According to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, more than 30,000 people have been killed since the bloodshed started in Syria in 2011. (end) oh.ba KUNA 081252 Oct 12NNNN
