Homs, SANA – Homs Governorate ran on Saturday buses to transport displaced locals back to their homes in the cities of Palmyra and al-Qaryatain heading from Homs city.
Both cities came recently under the army’s control after all ISIS terrorists were forced out of them.
Some 2000 displaced people will be transported by 46 buses that will head to Palmyra city, in addition to two buses to al-Qaryatain, said Homs Governor Talal al-Barazi in a statement to the reporters outside the Governorate’s building where the buses will set off.
The transporting goes on as technical teams of various establishments have already embarked on maintenance works to repair and rehabilitate the infrastructure damaged by ISIS terrorists.
“It is expected that the main services of health, electricity and water will be restored within weeks in the two cities,” the governor said.
The locals of al-Qaryatain city started returning to check on their homes on Friday, while people started to return to Palmyra a day before.
