Lebanese PM Najib Mikati held an urgent meeting with Lebanese Social Affairs Minister Wael Abu Faour and the Lebanese Displaced Minister Alaeddine Terro on Thursday, July 19 where they discussed the arrival of Syrian refugees into Lebanon for the first time legally via the Masnaa border area. Most are arriving from the Syrian capital of Damascus due to the recent bombing happening in there.
Abu Faour told reporters in a press conference after the meeting that around 8,500 Syrian refugees entered Lebanon on Thursday due to the violent events in Syria.
SOUNDBITE 1 (Arabic) – Lebanon’s Social Affairs Minister, Wael Abu Faour:
“8500 Syrians fled to Lebanon. Of course this is due to the recent events happened at Damascus and fearful people. There are large numbers of Syrian refugees in Lebanon and the number is increasing. The Lebanese state needs to fulfill its duties. The Social Affairs Ministry’s team has arrived at the borders in addition to the Higher Relief Commission for Refugees and a number of international organizations who give assistance on this issue.” He added that since Wednesday 4,500 cars passed through the border crossing, adding that 250 vehicles came from Syria to Lebanon.
The number of Syrian refugees escaping to Lebanon increased in light of the recent bombing in Damascus that claimed the lives of three top security officials.
Abu Faour stressed that Mikati has given instructions to the Higher Relief Commission to carry out its work to help the displaced.
Abu Faour said Lebanese public schools will open to house the thousands of Syrian refugees streaming into Lebanon to escape the violent crackdown of the regime against protestors and civilians.
According to the latest weekly report released by the Nations High Commission for Refugees (UNHCR), there are now 30,000 Syrian refugees in Lebanon, of whom 26,905 are registered to receive regular services from the UNHCR and other agencies.
The UN estimates that more than 10,000 people, mostly civilians, have been killed in Syria and tens of thousands displaced since the uprising against President Bashar al-Assad began 16 months ago.

Egypt's SCAF Warns Abbassiya Protesters

Cairo, Egypt | May 3, 2012

Egypt's ruling Supreme Council of the Armed Forces (SCAF) held a press conference Thursday, May 3, to comment on the recent clashes between protestors and thugs in Abbasiya, close to the Defense Ministry. The violence resulted in the deaths of at least 9 and injured dozens.

SCAF members expressed sorrow for the victims of the deadly clashes, stressing that the Armed Forces belong to the people, and their mission is to protect the country and its territories.

Major General Mokhtar al-Molla, SCAF Member, sternly warned protestors not to approach the Defense Ministry, stressing that it is the symbol of military honor and the state's authority.

SOUNDBITE 1 (Arabic) – Major General Mokhtar al-Molla:
"I praise the men of the Armed Forces, including leaders, officers, non-commissioned officers and soldiers, for what they bore throughout the last fifteen months, suffering all manner of interferences and transgressions. However, they are honorable men who give everything for the sake of the nation. But if anyone approaches their den (i.e. the Defense Ministry), let everyone be accountable for themselves."

For his part, Major General Mohamed al-Assar said that the sit-in in such a military zone is dangerous due to the sensitivity of the area on one hand, and the fact that it interrupts the activities of Ain Shams University and Ain Shams Hospital as well. He added that Tahrir Square is the most appropriate place for such protests.

SOUNDBITE 2 (Arabic) – Major General Mohamed al-Assar:
"We say that the sit-in in this area is dangerous because it is close to the Ministry of Defense, and the military buildings. We all know how dangerous the consequences and escalations are in such a sensitive area. The sit-in also affected the students of Ain Shams University and the work of Ain Shams Hospital. We believe that the suitable place for such sit-ins and protests is Tahrir Square."

The speaker reaffirmed that the ruling SCAF is committed to hold presidential elections, and hand over power on time.

The sit-in around the Defense Ministry started early Saturday morning, and was mainly occupied by supporters of disqualified Salafi presidential candidate Hazem Salah Abu Ismail.

After the clashes, allegedly launched by hired thugs to disperse the anti-SCAF protestors, others joined the sit-in in condemnation of the bloody clashes, and the defense of the right of all Egyptians to stand for their beliefs.

Massive anti-SCAF protests are expected on Friday in Tahrir Square nationwide.

Cairo, Egypt | March 15, 2012

US Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi said on Thursday, March 15, in a press conference in Cairo, that the relations between the United States and Egypt would remain strong despite the controversial NGO issue which she described as "a bump in the road" of the strong ties between the two countries.
SOUNDBITE 1 (English) - US congressional minority leader Nancy Pelosi:
"Whatever the NGO issue was, it should not be a barrier to the future possibilities between our two countries. The Egyptian people, if they want to have cooperation from the United States in their interest and we want to help them in our interest, let us proceed with the greatest respect and not let bump on the road, which you have with many countries, be an obstacle to that."

Pelosi commended Egypt’s recent elections of the two houses of the parliament as the first step towards democracy, reaffirming that the stability of Egypt serves the US interests in the region.
She also lowered the tone of Washington's threat to cut off financial aid to Egypt, saying that the United States would be there for Egypt provided the Egyptians were aware of the friendship between the two countries.
SOUNDBITE 2 (English) - US congressional minority leader Nancy Pelosi:
"The United States is well served by a strong and stable Egypt, to the extent that that assistance is in further ends of that stability, we'll certainly be there. However, we want to be there in a way that is directly beneficial to the Egyptian people and that they are aware of our friendship."
