BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:30 P.M.) – The Nassib Crossing that links Syria’s Dara’a Governorate with Jordan was reopened last month after closing in 2015 due to the security situation in the province.

Since its reopening in October, a total of 2,380 refugees have returned to Syria from neighboring Jordan, a government official said on Wednesday.

Among the 2,380 refugees that returned to Syria in the last month, at least 300 of them were military deserters that were pardoned by the Syrian government.

According to the official, the 300 men settled their situation with the government, as the new general amnesty bill for deserters has paved the way for their return.

More refugees are expected to return to Syria from Jordan in the coming weeks, as both Damascus and Amman coordinate their repatriation.

They dont prefer Assad. The same for the several 100.000 in Lebanon.

Those are not prefared anywhere in the world.

Bien sûr, on ne pouvait pas faire autrement, mais ce n’est quand même pas cher payé pour avoir livré son peuple aux coupeurs de gorge!
