AMMONNEWS - More than 900 Syrian refugees have returned to their home country from Jordan and Lebanon over the past 24 hours, the Russian Defense Ministry's Center for the Reconciliation of Opposing Sides and Refugee Migration Monitoring said on Sunday.

"Over the past 24 hours, a total of 913 refugees have returned to the Syrian Arab Republic from foreign states: 89 people (including 27 women and 45 children) left Lebanon [for Syria] via the Jdaidit Yabws and Talkalakh checkpoints, while 824 people (including 247 women and 420 children) returned from Jordan via the Nassib checkpoint," the center said in its daily bulletin.

In addition, 130 internally displaced Syrians have returned to their places of residence in the Arab republic over the given period.

The Russian Akhmad Kadyrov Regional Public Fund has carried a humanitarian operation in Aleppo, delivering a tonne of bread to the local residents.

Syrian engineering units have, meanwhile, cleared of mines 3.3 hectares (8.2 acres) of land in the provinces of Quneitra and Damascus and destroyed 26 explosive devices over the past 24 hours, the bulletin added.

As the Syrian government has regained control over most of the country's territories that were seized by terrorists, it is now focused on creating favorable conditions for repatriating refugees. Moscow is assisting Damascus in this process, along with providing humanitarian aid to civilians and being a guarantor of the ceasefire.
