Migrant Boat from Lebanon Disembarks in Cyprus

A boat carrying 12 irregular migrants which set sail from Lebanon’s seashore landed in Cyprus a couple of days ago. The boat was intercepted by the Turkish and Cyprian coast guards. The migrants who were onboard were detained.

Activists identified the migrants as: Adel Hasan, Abdul Rahman AlIsa, Abdullah AlTaki, Majd AlHamdeh, Ahmed Shalouf, Mohamed Mohamed, Muneer Nabil Khalil, Hasan Majidweik, Faysal Mustafa, Abdul Rahim AlAtek, Rabii AlAhmed, and Udai AlKuraish.

Lebanon, a small Mediterranean country of some 4.5 million people which has been rocked by unprecedented anti-government protests since October 17, says it hosts nearly 500,000 Palestinian refugees.

Those escaping Lebanon by boat have often tried to cross into Europe through Turkey or Cyprus, some 100 kilometers (62 miles) away.

In October, Lebanon said it agreed to work with Cyprus to prevent migrants from reaching its shores.
