    Security officials check papers at a checkpoint in Homs.

    Homs, one of Syria's largest cities, was finally liberated in December 2015 following a local ceasefire agreement between Damascus and the militants. Even though the local residents are now living in peace, it will take a long time to restore city to its former glory.
