HOMS /Syria/, August 15. /TASS/. More than 650 people who refused to surrender arms during the reconciliation process in Homs Province and left for Idlib have returned to the province to peaceful life, Governor Tal al-Barazi told reporters on Wednesday.
He said that during the reconciliation process administered by the Russian Center for Reconciliation of the Warring Parties, 80% of the population in al-Rastan, Al-Dar al-Kabirah, Taldau, al-Ghantu, Tell-Bisa and Houla stayed, while 20% refused to surrender arms and were taken to Idlib.
Now, those who left for Idlib can return home. "As of now, about 650 people, who left the city with arms for Idlib, have returned. They have got back and live in their homes," the governor said.
"There have been no clashes since the agreement on national reconciliation was signed. Law enforcement agencies monitor law and order," he explained.
According to al-Barazi, those who want to return from Idlib, must first get to the nearest positions of the Syrian army, surrender arms and then safety will be guaranteed to them.
"Here, they can return to their routine life. Some will serve in the army, others will get back to studies or job," Tal al-Barazi said.
