"The administration of the city of Homs has prepared 46 buses to Palmyra and two buses to Al-Qaryatayn, it's planned to send a total of over 2,000 temporarily displaced Homs citizens back to their homes", a source told RIA Novosti.
On March 27, the Syrian army, backed by militias and Russian Aerospace Forces, fully liberated Palmyra, which was under the control of Daesh since May 2015.
Syria has been mired in civil war since 2011, with forces loyal to Assad's government fighting numerous opposition factions and extremist groups. The Daesh emerged in 2013, overrunning swathes of Syria and Iraq in 2014. It is a militant jihadist organization outlawed in most countries, including Russia.
