Syrian refugees cross back to homeland with hopes of better tomorrow

Syrian refugees cross back to homeland
After spending years as refugees in neighboring Lebanon, nearly 500 Syrians crossed back to Syria on Thursday, setting foot in their home country for the first time in years with hopes of a better tomorrow.

Pickup trucks loaded with belongings started showing up at the Zamrani crossing between Syria's western al-Qalamoun region and the Lebanese town of Arsal on Thursday, with faces of women, children and men looking in curiosity as they inched closer to a Syrian checkpoint.

These people have suffered a lot, because, for refugees, life is not always easy as many of them lived for over five years in tents in Arsal, Lebanon, which is adjacent to the western al-Qalamoun.

They have registered their names to be sent back to Syria as both governments of Syria and Lebanon were sending positive signals about the need for the return of Syrians to their towns now that the situation has significantly improved.

The move to return refugees is now concentrated on those who sought refuge in Arsal, after fleeing their homes and towns in Syria's western al-Qalamoun region, when the [so-called] "rebels", including terror-designated ones such as the Islamic State (IS) and the al-Qaida-linked Nusra Front, were in control of parts of this mountainous region.
