Roughly 40 percent of displaced Syrian nationals illegally in Lebanon living in the northern town of Bsharri have left according to a Nov. 25 deadline for their departure set by a local municipality decree.The calls for Syrians to leave the town came to a head in daily protests at Bsharri's public school for girls starting at the beginning of Nov. The demonstrations were started as a bid to pressure local authorities not to register Syrian children and stick to the deadline.
