On June 28, more than 450 Syrian refugees returned from a camp near the Lebanese town of Arsal to their homes in the Syrian regions of western and eastern Qalamun, according to the Lebanese National News Agency (NNA).

The Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA) reported that the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) welcomed the refugees and facilitated their return to their homes in the villages and towns of al-Jebbah, Assal al-Ward, Yabroud, Ras al-Maara, Flitah, al-Ruhaybah and Jayrud.

“The return of refugees to their homeland today is not forced but voluntary,” said Arsal Mayor Bassil al-Hujeiri commenting on the development, according to the Chinese Xinhua News Agency.

Furthermore, chief of the Lebanese General Directorate of General Security revealed that the return of the Syrian refugees was coordinated with the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR). In the upcoming days, at least five or six additional batches of refugees will return to the western and eastern Qalamun in the same way.

Currently, Lebanon hosts more than one million Syrian refugees, according to the Human Rights Watch. Most of these refugees are from the governorates of Homs and Damascus, which were secured by the SAA recently.

    The US specifically ordered Lebanon to continue holding the hostages in the UN concentration camps. Why is Lebanon intentionally defying US and UN will and releasing the Syrian hostages back to their home country? What good are they to the US if they’re back in Syria? The US is spending a lot of money to keep Lebanon destabilized. This isn’t helping one bit!

      The US is retreating, the US is calling off its invasion of Syria, it’s called defeat.

      America will start another war, somewhere else, in a while.

    South Front writes a whole article about this instead of even mentioning that the SAA just inadvertently displaced 50,000 in Daraa. Hmm…
