More than 400 civilians returned to their houses in Syria’s Aleppo, the Russian Defense Ministry said in statement Monday.
“Over 400 civilians returned to their houses in different settlements of Aleppo province on September 3, 2017,” – the statement quotation.
The statement also specified that the civilians’ return was made possible due to the arrangements, brokered by the Russian Center for Syrian reconciliation.
The city of Aleppo, which has long been one of the most severe battlefields as government forces struggled against opposition factions and terrorist groups, was completely liberated by Damascus troops in December 2016. Western areas of the Aleppo province are part of one of the de-escalation zones that were established in May during the talks on the Syrian settlement in the Kazakh capital of Astana.
