BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:35 P.M.) – The Syrian government called on displaced civilians and refugees, Thursday, to return to the Wadi Barada area of west Damascus, following the restoration of the Al-Fijeh Spring.

The Al-Fijeh Spring was destroyed during the 2017 battle for Wadi Barada, which ultimately ended in a victory for the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and their allies.

A large number of civilians were forced to leave the Wadi Barada area after heavy fighting immersed the western countryside of Damascus between 2011-2017.

Since the departure of jihadist rebels from the Wadi Barada in 2017, the Syrian government has been able to clear this area of explosives and repair the destroyed infrastructure.
