The bodies of at least nine Syrians who froze to death, likely while trying to cross into Lebanon, were found close to the border on January 19, according to a statement by the Lebanese Army. Local reports said two children were found among the dead. The bodies were discovered on a route known to be used by smugglers between Souairi and Masnaa in Lebanon’s Beqaa governorate. Six people were reportedly rescued on the route and transferred to a nearby hospital. Local media posted a photo of two adults and a child, whose bodies can be seen lying in the snow.
