Over 20 thousand residents have returned to their homes in southwestern Aleppo, which has been cleared from terrorists, the Sheikh of the province Abdallah Dandal, TASS reported on June 27.

“As the elder of this region, the southwestern part of Aleppo, I decided to work together with the Russian Center for Reconciliation. Twice a week we meet at the regional office together with the province authorities and Russian officials to discuss the progress of the reconstruction and returning refugees. Decisions are made without delay. As a result, 20 thousand people have returned to their homes,” said Abdallah Dandal who works together with the Russian Center for Reconciliation of Opposing Sides in Syria.

Having cleared the city and part of the Aleppo province from militants, the Syrian government has been restoring the city’s infrastructure. First of all, the roads between the towns and villages were inspected and restored, regular food shipments were arranged, and the region’s electric networks were restored.

Fighting for the economic center of Syria, Aleppo, began on June 19, 2012. Approximately 40% of the territory was controlled by members of moderate opposition insurgent groups including Al-Nusra Front (organization banned in Russia) and Islamic State (organization banned in Russia). In 2016, after a number of successful operations carried out by government forces to encircle and storm the city, Aleppo was liberated from the terrorists.
