Syrians Living In Turkey Return Home In Northern Syria

After liberation from terrorists, Ras al Ayn residents begin returning home after 7 years.

Syrians who had fled to Turkey from terror groups occupying their homeland have started to return on Friday to areas cleared of terrorists by Turkey's anti-terror operation.
As life returns to normal in the district of Ras al-Ayn after Operation Peace Spring, maintenance and restoration efforts continue in the area in northern Syria.
Around 70 Syrians, including women and children, living in Turkey's southeastern border province of Sanliurfa set off from the Viransehir and Ceylanpinar districts after applying to local authorities to return home.
Crossing the border, they showed their gratitude to the Turkish military personnel, with National Syrian Army teams welcoming them on the other side.
Muazzin al-Muhammad, one of the returning Syrians, told reporters they were happy that Ras al-Ayn had been liberated from terrorists.
"We have been living in Turkey for seven years. I'm so happy, we are returning to our country," al-Muhammad said.
"We thank you [Turkish] President Recep Tayyip Erdogan for everything," he said, adding that he was 11 when he left Ras al-Ayn.
Abdulazim al-Muhammad also said he was very happy to go back to his country, and thanking Turkey for its hospitality.
Turkey on Oct. 9 launched Operation Peace Spring, to eliminate the terrorist YPG/PKK from northern Syria east of the Euphrates River in order to secure Turkey's borders, aid in the safe return of Syrian refugees, and ensure Syria's territorial integrity.
Ankara wants YPG/PKK terrorists to withdraw from the region so that a safe zone can be created to pave the way for the safe return of some two million refugees.
In its more than 30-year terror campaign against Turkey, the PKK -- listed as a terrorist organization by Turkey, the U.S. and EU -- has been responsible for the deaths of over 40,000 people, including women, children and infants. The YPG is the PKK's Syrian offshoot.
