 Lebanese security arrests 43 Syrians entered illegally
 (Zaman Al Wasl)- Lebanon General Security Directorate held at least 43 Syrians, including 12 children, saying they were crossing the border illegally, according to an official statement issued Wednesday.

The Lebanese Security said the detained Syrians were caught in al-Manara town in Bekaa Valley.
Local media in Lebanon have reported that the Supreme Defence Council, whose decisions are not made public, recently instructed General Security Directorate to deport all Syrians who have entered the country illegally.

The official NNA news agency, quoting a "security report", said on Friday that Lebanese authorities had deported 301 Syrians between May 7 and May 20.

Lebanon has hosted more than 1.5 million Syrian refugees, a significant burden for a country of some 4.5 million people since the Syrian revolution outbreak in 2011.

The rights groups say some 74 percent of Syrians in Lebanon lack legal residency and are at risk of detention.

Syria's war has killed more than 560,000 people and displaced millions inside the country and abroad.
