MORE THAN 50 SYRIAN REFUGEE FAMILIES RETURN TO SYRIA

More than fifty Syrian refugee families left Arsal's refugee camp at dawn, heading back to the Syrian town of Asal al-Ward along the Syrian-Lebanese border," the Lebanese Army announced in a statement on Saturday.

The statement indicated that the Syrian families departed in a convoy of 30 civilian vehicles, and were accompanied by Lebanese Army units until the last military checkpoint on the outskirts of Arsal.

"This departure falls within the framework of the reconciliation committee's efforts, after ensuring a safe way for refugees to return to their homeland," said Arsal's Deputy Municipality Head, Rima Karnab, adding that "the number of returnees exceeded 400 refugees."
