The Philippines imposed a deployment ban to Syria as hostilities there continue to escalate, the Philippine Overseas Employment Administration (POEA) said Tuesday.
POEA administrator Carlos Cao said they will temporarily stop the deployment of overseas Filipino workers there until the situation there improves.
“Kapag ang level three is confirmed all over the country, banned ang deployment — both ng balik-manggagawa at new hires," he said in an interview with reporters.
