Over 870 Syrians Returned Home From Abroad In Past 24 Hours - Russian Defense Ministry
MOSCOW (UrduPoint News / Sputnik - 17th March, 2019) A total of 879 Syrian refugees have returned to their home country from Jordan and Lebanon over the past 24 hours, the Russian Defense Ministry's Center for the Reception, Allocation and Accommodation of Refugees said on Sunday.
"Over the past day, in total 879 people returned to the Syrian Arab Republic from the territory of foreign states: 203 people ... left Lebanon for Syria via the Jaydet-Yabus and Talkalakh CPs [check points], and 676 people ... from Jordan via the Nasib CP," the center said in its daily bulletin.
The center added that as many as 90 internally displaced Syrians had returned to their places of permanent residence in the country over the given period.
According to the bulletin, the Syrian engineering units defused 26 explosive devices in the country over the past 25 hours.
As the Syrian government has regained control over most of the country's territories that were seized by terrorists, it is now focused on creating favorable conditions for repatriating refugees. Moscow is assisting Damascus in this process, along with providing humanitarian aid to civilians and being a guarantor of the ceasefire.
