Canada Denies Report 100,000 Palestinians Coming to Canada

Canada has denied a Lebanese media report that Ottawa reached a deal with the United States to accept 100,000 Palestinian refugees – 40,000 from Lebanon and 60,000 from Syria. According to the report, similar understandings are in place for France, Belgium and Spain, each of which would take in about 15,000 Palestinians.

The Immigration Minister’s Press Secretary Mathieu Genest said: “Canada does not have such an agreement with the United States and there are no special programs currently being considered to resettle people from Lebanon or Syria.”

Genest goes on to say that they regularly “monitor for online misinformation and disinformation,” and that the government aims to “act quickly to provide facts” in instances such as these.

The initiative is said to be part of US President Donald Trump’s anti-Palestinian “deal of the century”, the political components of which will be unveiled after Israel’s September 17 election.
