ARSAL,Lebanon: A third installment of refugees who had signed up to return to Syria started their journey home from the Lebanese border town of Arsal Monday morning.
The group of approximately 900 refugees will head to the Syrian town Qara east of Qalamoun.
On June 28, the first group of nearly 400 refugees returned from Arsal, followed by a second group of 377 on July 7.
A fourth group is set to follow in the coming days, according to comments made by General Security chief Abbas Ibrahim to LBCI last week.
The returning families are part of a list of over 3,000 people who had signed up in Arsal, where tens of thousands of refugees who fled the violence of Syria's seven-year civil war are still estimated to be residing in camps.
The list also went through General Security to ensure there are no security concerns for the returning families.
