Bsharri authorities are seeking tighter controls on Syrian refugees in the district northeast of Beirut Monday in an attempt to preempt any clashes after the showdown in Arsal between Syrian militants and the Army earlier this month.There are more than 1.3 million Syrian refugees estimated to be in Lebanon, with the highest concentrations in north Lebanon and the Bekaa Valley.Villages and towns throughout the country have introduced regulations to keep control and track of the Syrian refugees they are hosting, a process that many stepped up following the clashes between the Army and Syrian militants who overran the northeastern border town of Arsal.
