Hamas: Palestinians not involved in Syrian crisis

The representative of the Islamic Resistance Movement “Hamas” in Lebanon Ali Baraka confirmed that the Palestinians “will only be a calming factor in Lebanon, and they are keen to prevent any tension in the (refugee) camps.”

There is Palestinian consensus in Lebanon on “the need to maintain security and stability in the Palestinian refugee camps,” Baraka added during a meeting with Lebanese MP Bahia Hariri in Majdelyoun on Friday, stressing at the same time that Palestinians in Syria and Lebanon are not involved in the Syrian crisis or in its effects on the Lebanese arena.

Regarding the meeting held in the Palestinian embassy between the factions and the coalition concerning the conditions of the Palestinian families displaced from Syrian, Baraka said that the Palestinian factions have agreed on Thursday to form a monitoring committee in cooperation with UNRWA to oversee those refugees’ conditions.
