“Being back at the house feels like coming back to homeland,” said Amal al-Adas with tears feeling in her eyes. “Victory over ISIS is victory over disbelief and criminality,” she added.
Hazar Trad saw that the locals’ return to their homes after ISIS terrorists wreaked havoc in Palmyra is a message to the world that
“the Syrians have been and will always remain one united family in the face of all those who want to dismember it.”
Homs Governor Tala al-Barazi said as the displace people of Palmyra are returning back, the army’s engineering units together with the Russian forces continue operations of demining the area in the vicinity of the city where hundreds of bombs and explosive devices were planted by ISIS terrorists.
