MOSCOW, May 2. /TASS/. More than 63,700 residents of Eastern Ghouta have come back to their homes from refugee camps, said Major General Yuri Yevtushenko, the chief of the Russian center for reconciliation of conflicting sides in Syria.
"Thanks to comprehensive efforts, 63,740 residents of Eastern Ghouta have returned to their homes from camps for refugees and temporarily displaced persons," he said on Wednesday.
Peaceful life is getting back on track in Eastern Ghouta. Russian servicemen have demined six houses and defused 12 improvised bombs in the town of Douma in the past 24 hours.
"Representatives of the Russian reconciliation center held a working meeting with the head and police chief of Nashabiya, listing housing facilities and road infrastructure which are to be rebuilt first," Yevtushenko said.
The humanitarian situation is improving in Eastern Qalamoun. For example, nine improvised bombs have been destroyed in Ruheiba.
In the past 24 hours, 180 residents of the Homs province and 112 residents of Eastern Ghouta came back to their homes abandoned at outbreak of the hostilities.
"The Russian center for reconciliation of conflicting sides monitors resettlement of refugees from the Tell-Rifaat de-confliction zone to the city of Manbij in the Aleppo province. In the past 24 hours, 172 people were brought with personal belongings to that populated locality," Yevtushenko said.
The Russian reconciliation center continues to fulfill assigned tasks after the completion of the military campaign in Syria. The center’s officers regularly travel around the country's liberated areas to assess the humanitarian situation. The main efforts of the Russian military are now focused on assistance to the refugees returning to their homes and evacuation of civilians from de-escalation zones.
