The Government of Lebanon is also trying to reduce numbers of refugees already inside Lebanon, partly by encouraging displaced Syrians to return to their or another country. We assess that current restrictions have resulted in a reduction of 75% in those entering Lebanon over the last month.</p><p>The UK continues to urge Lebanon not to return Syrian refugees as we do not judge it safe to do so at present.</p><p>The UK has so far committed £140m in humanitarian and development assistance to Lebanon since the start of the Syria crisis, much of which is to assist with refugees.</p> more like this

Over recent days, however, the defenders of Kobane, supported by coalition airstrikes, have been able to hold their position against ISIL, and in some areas they are pushing back. The Department for International Development has already responded to the urgent needs of Syrian Kurdish refugees that have fled to Turkey and stands ready to respond positively should further aid be needed.</p> more like this

unstar this property answer text <p>The city of Aleppo is under pressure from President Assad’s forces. Assad’s regime is currently seeking to encircle Aleppo, and applying pressure to the 300,000 civilians and the moderate opposition in the area, whilst also bombarding the area with barrel bombs and artillery. The moderate opposition – many of them Aleppo civilians themselves – are in Aleppo supporting and protecting its inhabitants. At present, the moderate groups in Aleppo are holding off the assault from the regime. But the conditions are difficult, and they will need our continuing support.</p> more like this

unstar this property answer text The moderate opposition groups in Syria are under pressure. The Government remains longstanding and strong supporters of these groups. We are providing non-lethal support, as well as strong political backing for the National Coalition – most recently when President Hadi al-Bahra visited London from 10th-12th November. We also plan to make a significant contribution to the US Department of Defence training programme for the Syrian groups. Taken together, our contribution is helping the moderate groups in their fight against ISIL and against President Assad’s regime forces, in very challenging conditions. more like this
