One of the largest groups of Syrian refugees to leave Lebanon to return home arrived in Syria Monday in the third such departure over the past month.This third cohort of refugees who had signed up to return to Syria started their journey to the Syrian town of Qara, east of Qalamoun.The returning families were part of a list of over 3,000 people who had signed up in Arsal, where tens of thousands of refugees who had fled the violence of Syria's seven-year civil war are still residing in camps.Lebanon hosts close to 1 million Syrian refugees, although some Lebanese officials say the number is much higher.
