“We are exhausted with refugee life. I am happy that Allepo has been liberated from these nasty terrorists. It is the best gift from the Syrian army,” Abu Muhammed from Eastern Aleppo told Sputnik Arabic.
“We have always believed that our army together with its allies will cleanse our city of terrorists, despite all the efforts of international coalition forces who wanted to drive all the inhabitants from this city and make it a base for terrorists, as they did in Idlib,” he added.
According to Muhammed, his family has packed their belongings and have been waiting for an official announcement that the city is liberated before returning home, where they can't wait to meet up with their son who is in the Syrian army.
The Syrian government has organized a daily bus service for those who wish to return to Aleppo.
“May god help us, we will begin a new life and will be able to rebuild our houses,” a man says in the video shot by Sputnik’s reporter in Aleppo.
“We return to Aleppo and thank the Syrian army and President Assad for that,” a woman in a bus says. “We also thank the people who hosted us; they became our friends and family. Thanks to all who stood with us in this war!”
