President Michel Aoun Thursday said Lebanon is confronting risks "on all fronts" from the refugee crisis, particularly as the region faces an uncertain fate in the wake of recent "escalations".Aoun also claimed the number of refugees in Lebanon recently became close to 50 percent of Lebanon's total population.While the international community has been pressuring Lebanon to continue housing refugees until the situation in Syria is resolved, Aoun is vying for the return of refugees as soon as possible to "safe zones" inside Syria.
