Displaced Syrian Families Return Home in Deir Ez-Zor
TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Hundreds of displaced Syrian people have returned to their homes in al-Mayadeen town, located some 45 kilometers (28 miles) southeast of the provincial capital of Deir ez-Zor, a report said.
On Monday, Syrian government forces secured the families’ arrival in al-Mayadeen and helped them reside in makeshift settlements with all their basic needs.
In turn, the evacuees expressed their happiness as they managed to escape from ISIS terrorism, calling on civilians who live in the areas where ISIS is positioned to head to the nearest points of the Syrian Arab Army.
On October 14, Syrian army soldiers, supported by allied fighters from popular defense groups, liberated the strategic eastern city of Mayadeen from the clutches of Daesh (ISIL) Takfiri terrorists in the country’s eastern province of Deir ez-Zor.
The loss of Mayadeen, located about 44 kilometers southeast of Deir ez-Zor, was the latest in a string of blows to the Daesh Takfiris, who are on the verge of collapse in the Arab country.
Syria has been gripped by foreign-backed militancy since March 2011. The Syrian government says the Israeli regime and its Western and regional allies are aiding Takfiri terrorist groups wreaking havoc in the country.
