Around 20,000 Residents Returned to Syria’s Homs After Militants Left – Governor

Syrian residents continue to return back to their homes amid the reconciliation agreement coming into force, the governor of Homs city and province said.

Talal Barazi, the governor of both the city and province of Homs, said in an interview to Sputnik that around 20,000 people, or 500 families, returned home in 2016-2017 to Homs and its neighborhoods.

He explained that the Syrian civilians were coming back because the military forces were withdrawing from Syria and the reconciliation agreement was in place.
