Hundreds of families who have recently been displaced by threats from the Assad regime and the Iranian terrorist militias to storm their areas have returned to their homes in the town of Kafarzeita north of Hama following the Turkish-Russian agreement on Idlib which prevented a potential military campaign against the region.
The local council in Kafarzeita said that the families who have recently returned to the town were displaced following the Assad regime’s amassment of troops on the edge of the town as well as the violent bombing campaign by the Assad regime’s forces and their allies in the region.
The Syrian Coalition said that the agreement was an important step to save the lives of civilians as it thwarted plans by the Assad regime to displace the local population.
Smart News Network quoted the local council in Kafarzeita as saying that the families began to return after the relative calm that prevailed in the region following the Idlib agreement. Civilians are returning despite the lack of essential services and appropriate response from relief organizations in the region.
The local council said it was working on securing essential services such as clean water, bread and electricity. The council, in cooperation with the Syrian Civil Defense, also restored a number of classrooms in three schools to receive students in the new academic year.
About 600 families have also returned to their homes in the nearby town of Latamna since the agreement on Idlib was reached.
Tens of thousands of people were internally displaced by an intense aerial bombing campaign by the Assad regime and its allies in Idlib and neighboring provinces. Most of the displaced people headed towards the border with Turkey. Local activists pointed out that the relative calm that followed the agreement encouraged most of the displaced to return to their homes.
The Syrian Coalition said that the continued calm and commitment to the agreement would allow the return of thousands of displaced people to their towns and villages and the introduction of humanitarian aid to the province. It expressed hope that the agreement would prevent further bloodshed of innocent people. (Source: Syrian Coalition’s Media Department)
