More than 400,000 refugees returned to their homes after the liberation of Aleppo

According to the International Organization for Migration, over the past seven months, more than 603,000 refugees have returned to their homes. Also, about two thirds of them have chosen Aleppo as their destination.

The Syrians who have been displaced after the crisis are increasingly returning to their homes.

The International Organization for Migration announced on Friday that about 603,000 Syrian refugees returned to their cities and villages in the first seven months of 2017, including Syrians who have gone to other parts of Syria or those who had taken refuge in Turkey, Lebanon, Jordan, and Iraq.

These seven-month figures are roughly the same as the total number (685,662) of refugees returning to their homes during 12 months of 2016, said Olivia Hideon, spokesman for the organization.

The return of Syrians was due to incentives such as the desire to preserve homes and assets, improved economic and security status, and the problems that makes it difficult for immigrants to live abroad.

The Statistics show that about 67 percent of refugees are returning to their homes (about 404,000) in Aleppo, where Syrian government forces were able to liberate the eastern half of the city from militants and terrorists.
