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 around 5,000 liters of diesel to some 250 Syr­ian refugee fam­i­lies in Be­qaa district, eastern Le­banon. Hope­fully this small aid ges­ture will help th­ese fam­i­lies fend off the harsh cold win­ter, said the of­fi­cial. There are around one mil­lion Syr­ian refugees in Le­banon es­cap­ing from the on­go­ing war rag­ing since 2011 in their coun­try. 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. — KUNA
