A protest by residents of north Lebanon's Bsharri calling on their municipality to evict local Syrian refugees entered its fifth day Friday.With the influx of Syrian refugees into the country, many Lebanese schools have operated a two-shift system – classes for Lebanese nationals and some refugees in the mornings and for Syrian refugees in the afternoon.The school's principal has reportedly continued to register Syrian refugees despite residents' demands, due to a lack of an order from the municipality explicitly saying new Syrian students should not be registered as part of the decree.The protests come amid a backdrop of steadily rising anti-Syrian rhetoric that has seen numerous towns around the country – and several north Lebanon towns in recent months – close Syrian run businesses, displace Syrian residents and impose curfews on Syrian nationals.
