The International Committee of the Red Cross is in constant dialogue with all parties involved in the Syrian conflict, said Fabrizzio Carboni, who leads the group's delegation in Lebanon.The ICRC is working to ensure the efficient transfer of patients wounded in Syria to a network of hospitals and clinics throughout Lebanon, he added. Carboni explained that those injured in the Syrian war, whom he called weapon-wounded, are brought to the Lebanese border by a network of "medical networks or private citizens" who contact the ICRC. "And the fact that we're accepted is because of this impartiality," Carboni added.The Lebanese authorities, he insisted, are constantly updated about all ICRC operations in Lebanon. Carboni, however, says that the ICRC can only do so much.
