Naharnet - 300 Refugees Flee Syria's Hosn Village to Lebanon, March 24, 2014

The number of Syrians that have arrived in Lebanon after fleeing the village of al-Hosn in central Syria has risen to 300, the state-run National News Agency said Saturday.

"300 Syrian men, women, children and elderly have crossed the Grand River stream and arrived in Lebanese border towns,” the NNA detailed, adding that many of these refugees were concentrated in the villages of the Wadi Khaled region in the North.

"They temporarily took refuge at the houses of Wadi Khaled residents, until they relocate.”

The same source noted that a delegation of relief organizations visited these newly displaced Syrians, and provided them with urgently-needed supplies.

The influx of Syrian refugees has been on the rise after regime forces seized the famed Crusader fort Krak des Chevaliers on Thursday, marking a significant advance in their drive to seal the Lebanese border and sever rebel supply lines.

The number of refugees also increased after Syrian troops took full control of the town of Zara and its surroundings in the western Homs countryside, as well as of the former rebel stronghold of Yabrud, with the help of Hizbullah fighters.
