Statements made by the Lebanese media, Dalia Ahmed, about the Syrian refugees sparked wide reactions on social media, as activists and tweeters accused her of “racism” and “adopting hate speech.”

Presenter Ahmed said during her program “Fashhat Khalq” on Al-Jadeed channel: “We lived with you the most beautiful days of the collapse, we shared everything with you… But now we have nothing to share with you except immigration. It is inappropriate for the Lebanese to leave their country to you.”

She also said that Syrian refugees receive “dollars from the United Nations” and that the country is safe for their return.

The announcer described Lebanon as a “source of humanity” for receiving Syrian refugees for 11 years, since the protests began in Syria.
