Syrian official says 60 useless after migrant boat sinks


BEIRUT — The loss of life toll from a ship carrying migrants from Lebanon that sank in Syrian waters has risen to 60, the governor of Syria’s coastal province of Tartus mentioned Friday.

Abdul- Halim Khalil advised the pro-government Sham FM that search is ongoing for extra our bodies off his nation’s coast.

1000’s of Lebanese, Syrians and Palestinians have left Lebanon on boats over the previous months in search of higher alternatives in Europe.

Khalil mentioned the boat sank two days earlier.

Lebanon has a inhabitants of 6 million, together with 1 million Syrian refugees, and has been within the grips of a extreme financial meltdown since late 2019 that has pulled over three-quarters of the inhabitants into poverty.
