Quitting her hiatus, Lindsay Lohan returns to Instagram with posts about Syrian refugees

After deleting all her Instagram posts and taking a break from social media on 8 January, Lindsay Lohan returned to the limelight with a bang on Friday.

Speculations are that during her break time from all the buzz she was out to do some “grand visitings”.

She met the Turkish President, Recep Tayyip Erdogan and the seven-year-old viral Syrian blogger Bana al-Abed in Ankara that day, the Turkish presidency said on its website.

In Lohan’s first post on Instagram post the break, she poses with the president in the the presidential palace. The actress can be seen smiling beside Erdogan, who is embracing Bana as his wife Emine poses at his other side.

'What a dream it is for Mr. President Erdogan and The First Lady to invite me to their home. Their efforts in helping Syrian Refugees is truly inspiring,' she wrote in her caption.

She added: '#peace starts now @a_boynukalin @hilalkaplanogut @rterdogan please for peace @therealdonaldtrump Alaikum Salam' and ultimately closed out: '#cleanslate2017 #theworldisbiggerthan5'

That day, Bana shared a short video on Twitter, in which Lohan says: 'We want to send to all of the people in Syria and Aleppo suffering, and to all the refugees, we are here supporting you and you can hang on and be strong. Just like Bana has.'

Lohan had previously expressed support for Turkey's efforts to host nearly three million Syrians fleeing their nation's five-year war, the State-run Anadolu news agency said.

The ‘Freaky Friday’ actress gave light-blue badges to Erdogan and his wife, bearing a quote from the Turkish leader: 'World is bigger than five,' according to Anadolu.

The five in the quote refers to the UN Security Council's five permanent members -- Britain, China, France, Russia and the United States.

Bana who is the star born out of Twitter with her tweets giving a tragic account of the war in Syria's flashpoint city Aleppo, whose rebel areas fell back into government control last month, was evacuated from the besieged city to Turkey in December, and later that month she and her family were given the rare honour of being guests of Erdogan at the presidential palace.

Sharing the picture on her Twitter account, Bana wrote: 'Meeting with my friends, Emine and to support the people of Syria.'

Lohan, a former child star who appeared in hit films 'The Parent Trap,' 'Freaky Friday' and 'Mean Girls', has struggled with drug addiction and has had numerous run-ins with the law.

The troubled actress was sentenced in 2013 to 240 hours of community service for reckless driving and lying to police following a 2012 car accident in Santa Monica, California.
