Kuwait Times - - LOCAL -

Kuwait Red Cres­cent So­ci­ety (KRCS) con­tin­ued yes­ter­day to pro­vide re­lief aid and as­sis­tance to the Syr­ian refugees re­sid­ing in Le­banon. Head of the KRCS field team Talal Al-Khattaf said that the so­ci­ety pro­vided clothes to Syr­ian refugee fam­i­lies in Be­qaa District, east­ern Le­banon.

This cam­paign is within the KRCS ini­tia­tive to help Syr­ian refugees fend off the harsh win­ter sea­son, said the of­fi­cial. There are around one mil­lion Syr­i­ans refugees in Le­banon es­cap­ing from the on­go­ing war in their coun­try rag­ing since 2011.

Recently, the city of Aleppo, be­sieged by Syr­ian regime forces and al­lies, had been sub­jected to a ruth­less on­slaught that re­sulted in the death and in­jury of many Syr­i­ans. The cri­sis in Aleppo is ex­pected to worsen the hu­man­i­tar­ian sit­u­a­tion in Syria and nearby coun­tries.
