Beirut: A preemptive attack that crushed an outcast Syrian camp in northern Lebanon has led to an inevitable analysis of the Assad regime for its neglect of aiding or resettling the displaced population.

In the wake of the attack that caused 370 people to flee the camp late last Saturday, Lebanese political leaders blamed the Syrian regime for intimidating the country's exiles and deliberately preventing their return.

The allegations came as the Lebanese Armed Forces confirmed the arrest of eight individuals - two Lebanese and six Syrian citizens - in connection with the attack, which was followed by a compensation dispute between Syrian workers and their Lebanese superiors.

Sources quoted an official in an unusual service approaching Lebanon to "secure and care for the displaced Syrians."

The official source also reiterated the evacuees' calls to "move away from the homeland in a treacherous battle to revisit their country," saying that "every effort is made to encourage their return."

Despite this, the Lebanese Ministry of Foreign Affairs said it had not received any correspondence from the Syrian authorities, either directly or through the international safe haven in Damascus.

Walid Jumblatt, head of the Progressive Socialist Party, blamed the Syrian regime for fraud due to its ruling on the assault on the camp and called for a response to the perpetrators.

However, Sheikh Subhi al-Tufayli, former Hezbollah chief, said that the media campaign calling for the arrival of displaced Syrians "raises fears of a dirty mission that intends to take care of the issue of exile by handing them over to the dangerous regime in Damascus."

On Monday, UNHCR representative Khaled Kabbara visited the burning camp to examine the damage.

As explained by the Office of Evacuated People, the vast majority of the population of 370 have either been housed in various camps in the area or have discovered a fit with the locals.

Lebanese government figures show that about 1.5 million Syrians live in Lebanon, of whom one million are registered as outcasts with the United Nations. In any case, it is accepted that large quantities of Syrians enter the nation secretly and unregistered.

The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees said that displaced Syrians make up 25 percent of Lebanon's population, and 17 percent of them live in camps.

A new option indicated that 96 percent of the deportees need to re-visit Syria when they have a sense of security.

Online media banter about the arrival of evacuated Syrians to their country included praising Saudi Arabia after the terrible help the King Salman Center for Relief and Humanitarian Action provided to residents who left without cover after the fire-related criminal attack on Saturday.

The Syrian ambassador to Lebanon, Ali Abdul Karim, told the Syrian newspaper Al-Watan that an uncommon Syrian service had arrived at the consulate to monitor government aid to the displaced.

Likewise, the Syrian agent approached Lebanon "to repel those who can be relied upon and individuals who spoil the displaced Syrians."
