TEHRAN (Press Shia Agency) – Hundreds of Syrian refugees returned to their homeland from various areas in neighboring Lebanon on Tuesday.
According to SANA, refugees arrived at the Jdeidat Yabous, al-Zamarani and al-Dabbousiya border crossings from Lebanese territories.
They returned home in buses sent by Syrian authorities.
The report added that they arrived home after Syrian forces managed to liberate their hometowns from the clutches of Takfiri terrorist groups.
The refugees hailed sacrifices made by the Syrian forces to restore security and stability in their hometowns, and facilitate their return after years of displacement.
More than one million Syrian refugees are registered with the UNHCR in Lebanon. But the Beirut government estimates that the true number of Syrians in Lebanon stands at 1.5 million.
