The Syrian ambassador to Lebanon called on Saturday, Jan. 3, 2015, for coordination with Lebanese authorities after Beirut announced plans to impose unprecedented restrictions on Syrians trying to enter Lebanon. The move marks the most significant attempt by Lebanese authorities to stem the massive influx of an estimated 1.5 million Syrians who have sought refuge in Lebanon from the civil war raging in their homeland.
