How many Syrian refugees/migrants in Egypt? The answer is we don't know We are told that there are about 120,000 registered Syrian refugees/migrants but the number can be as high as 500,000 I believe that the real number is some where in between


Notice that Syrians refugees/migrants in Egypt have done well and non has been linked to Islamic terrorism

How many refugees/migrants in Egypt? Again we really don't know Is it 5 millions? And where do they come from? Again we don't have a real count We have only guesses and estimates And why are they residing in Egypt? Again we don't know The fact that many of them are Sudanese that lived in Egypt for "generations" does not mean that they are regarded as Egyptians Reason? it is very difficult (almost impossible) to acquire Egyptian citizenship This means they could be forced out of Egypt
