The deputies, Hady Hobeiche, Mouin Meerabi and Riad Rahhal, made the requests during a visit to the area by the United Nations coordinator for Lebanon, Derek Plumbly, according to today's edition of L'Orient Le Jour.
Meerabi underlined the need to "avoid [territorial] violations by the Syrian army, which is already responsible for the death of Ali Shaaban," a cameraman for the Lebanese television station Al Jadid, who was killed on Lebanese soil by shots fired from across the border.
The United Nations says that at least 15,000 Syrian refugees are currently in Lebanon. Unofficial sources say that the number is closer to 27,000, counting those who are not officially registered. (ANSAmed).
