Over 1,600 Syrians return home from Jordan, Lebanon over past 24 hours: Russian Military
Moscow, Apr 6: Over 1,600 Syrian refugees have returned to their home country from Jordan and Lebanon over the past 24 hours, the Russian Defense Ministry's Center for Refugee Reception, Distribution and Settlement said on Saturday.

"Over the past day, in total 1,604 people returned to the Syrian Arab Republic from foreign states: 342 people, including 103 women and 175 children, left Lebanon for Syria via the Jaydet-Yabus and Talkalakh checkpoints, and 1,262 people, including 379 women and 644 children, from Jordan via the Nasib checkpoint," the center said in its daily bulletin.

 

The center added that as many as 60 internally displaced Syrians had returned to their places of permanent residence in the country over the given period.

 

According to the bulletin, four houses, a hospital and an electric substation have been reconstructed over the given period. The Syrian engineering units have also cleared of mines 2.6 hectares (6.4 acres) of land and defused 41 explosive devices in the country over the past 24 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.
