A starving Syrian family have said ‘No thanks’ when the UN offered them a 3 bedroom flat in Mourneview Park we can reveal.

The Elbaz family from the war torn city of Damascus said they would ‘rather risk being blown to bits’ than move to Newry.

We spoke with the father of the family of 7 Muhammad Elbaz and he told Newry Spud:

“I’ve decided risking my family’s life is far more prudent than boarding a UN aeroplane and ending up in fucking Newry. I’d rather dodge bullets and bombs on a daily basis than live in Mourneview Park.”
