The press service of the Lebanese army reports that the citizens of Syria who fled to Lebanon from the border area of Kalamun, are beginning to return home. This happens with the help of military personnel.
«A convoy of 30 vehicles, accompanied by military patrols headed to the Lebanese checkpoint is situated on the Syrian border. Then they independently reached his native town of ASAL al-ward,» — said in a statement.
It is argued that this is only the beginning of the repatriation process. The return of refugees became possible as a result of an agreement between Hizbullah and jihadist group «Hayat Tahrir al-sham», which controlled the city since 2012.
In accordance with the terms of the agreement, blocked the jihadists were able to leave the settlement and join the militants in other areas. The city came under the control of the regime of Bashar al-Assad.
Note that Lebanon has taken about a million Syrian refugees. It was a severe test for the economy and the country’s infrastructure. The assistance provided by the international community has been inadequate.
