Egypt: Syrian conflict refugees face deportation
Twenty-three refugees from Syria – 21 Syrians and two Palestinians – are at risk of deportation from Egypt, including five women and nine children. The two Palestinians will likely be sent to Lebanon and the 21 Syrians to Turkey. The group sought refuge in Egypt after fleeing the armed conflict in Syria. Under international law, Egypt has a responsibility to protect people fleeing the conflict.
