750,000 displaced Syrians returned home in first half of 2018 — UN

An estimated 750,000 internally displaced Syrians returned to their homes through the first half of 2018, nearly equal the amount for all of last year, the United Nations said Friday.

UNHCR said that in 2017 it had "ramped up its capacity inside Syria" in anticipation that larger numbers of internally displaced people (IDPs) would head home to ce...Keep on reading: 750,000 displaced Syrians returned home in first half of 2018 — UN.....»»
