BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:45 P.M.) – At least 500 refugees returned to Syria this week after spending several years in Lebanon, Syrian state news reported on Wednesday.

According to the report from the Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA), the refugees began returning this morning to the Beit Jinn area in western Damascus.

Beit Jinn was recently cleared of all explosives that were left behind by the jihadist rebels before they were transorted from this area to northern Syria.

Many more refugees are expected to return to this area in the coming days, as the government already built several camps for these civilians in order to for them to get back on their feet.
