Thousands of Displaced Return to Al-Bowedha in Damascus Countryside

Return of families follows series of meetings between local reconciliation committees and authorities, SANA reports

Hundreds of families returned to their homes in the town of Al-Bowedha in the southern countryside of Damascus on Monday as part of efforts to restore normal life in the areas liberated from terrorism.

SANA’s reporter said that the return of the families followed a series of meetings held between local reconciliation committees and authorities in order to secure services and repair the main infrastructure of the town.

With the return of the families five years of suffering and displacement have come to an end, with the residents expressing happiness over their long-awaited return.

Minister for National Reconciliation Affairs Ali Haidar pointed out that the locals' return was made possible after boosting security and stability in the town and securing the logistic procedures for receiving them.

Meanwhile, Governor of the Damascus Countryside Alaa Ibrahim said that more than 1,000 families consisting of around 10,000 persons would return to Al-Bowedha on Tuesday. He added that the governorate will secure all the required services as soon as possible, with an emphasis on providing electricity and drinking water.
