Tens of Syrian refugees in Bekaa of eastern Lebanon have returned to their homeland Sunday, local media reported.
Two buses carrying about 67 Syrian refugees left Lebanon on Sunday heading for Damascus countryside, the National News Agency reported, adding that some others Syrian refugees crossed the border in their own cars.
Around 400 Syrian refugees have returned to their homeland Thursday from Arsal to Qalamoun via the Wadi Hmayyed using private buses.
Media reports say that more than 1 million Syrian refugees are registered with the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees in Lebanon.
Meanwhile, the Lebanese government estimates the true number of Syrians in the country to be 1.5 million.
Political parties in Lebanon have, on many occasions, voiced their concerns about the large number of refugees in the country, saying that their prolonged stay represents an economic and social burden.
