Brussels conference will hear warnings about Syrian regime’s treatment of returnees
Tensions over the enforced return of refugees to Syria are set to surface at a conference this week as host countries such as Lebanon call for the international community to do more.
With the Syrian war now entering its ninth year, neighbouring countries are facing intense domestic pressure for the refugees to return home. It is estimated that more than 5.6 million Syrians are refugees in Turkey, Lebanon, Jordan, Iraq and Egypt. A further 6.2 million are internally displaced.
