More than 24,000 Syrian refugees have returned to their homes from the territory of Jordan and Lebanon in one month, said head of the Russian Reconciliation Center for the Opposing Sides and Control over the Movement of Refugees Lieutenant General Sergei Solomatin.

“The border crossings for refugees continue to operate on a routine basis. Over the past month, 7,420 refugees returned through the Jdidat Yabus and Talkalakh border crossings from Lebanon, and 16,713 people from Lebanon through the Nassib border crossing,” the lieutenant general reported at an expanded joint meeting of the interagency coordination headquarters of Russia and Syria on the repatriation of the Syrian refugees.

He reported that 9,770 Syrian citizens returned to their permanent places of residence, including 744 people to Eastern Ghouta (Rif Dimashq Governorate).

A total of 5,060 people returned through the Al-Salihiyah border crossing to their homes in the Deir ez-Zor Governorate, and 3,966 people returned from the Idlib de-escalation zone through the Abu al-Duhur border crossing, Solomatin said.

This is a Civilized Place for Public Discussion

Please treat this discussion with the same respect you would a public park. We, too, are a shared community resource — a place to share skills, knowledge and interests through ongoing conversation.

These are not hard and fast rules, merely guidelines to aid the human judgment of our community and keep this a clean and well-lighted place for civilized public discourse.

Improve the Discussion

Help us make this a great place for discussion by always working to improve the discussion in some way, however small. If you are not sure your post adds to the conversation, think over what you want to say and try again later.

The topics discussed here matter to us, and we want you to act as if they matter to you, too. Be respectful of the topics and the people discussing them, even if you disagree with some of what is being said.

Be Agreeable, Even When You Disagree

You may wish to respond to something by disagreeing with it. That’s fine. But remember to criticize ideas, not people. Please avoid:

  • Name-calling
  • Ad hominem attacks
  • Responding to a post’s tone instead of its actual content
  • Knee-jerk contradiction

Instead, provide reasoned counter-arguments that improve the conversation.
