UNHCR rebrands the issue of returning Syrian refugees to their country.

The UN High Commissioner for Refugees UNHCR has reintroduced the issue of returning Syrian refugees to their country, through a report issued by it, in which it spoke about its commissioner Filippo Grandi’s recent visit to Damascus, and his meeting with the Minister of Local Administration and Environment in the Syrian state Hussein Makhlouf to discuss issues related to the return of the refugees.

The UNHCR report stated that Grandi stressed the need to communicate with the Syrian state to shed light on the refugees’ concerns, such as their safety, property rights and livelihoods, especially since Damascus is responsible for ensuring the security of Syrians returning to it, and it had previously emphasized that.

Grandi held the international community responsible for securing the resources people need to be able to repair their damaged homes, access water and health care, and send their children to school, stressing the need for the international community to play a key role in ensuring the safety of refugees and their return to their normal lives and mitigating the negative effects of the war in their country.

In its report, UNHCR also launched an appeal to the international community to expand the scope of humanitarian aid in Syria, including for people who chose to return to their homes after years of displacement inside and outside their country.

The UNHCR report comes to prove once again the falseness of the allegations of some Western countries that exploit the issue of Syrian refugees and use it as a pressure card against the Syrian state, claiming that the country is still not safe for the return of its people, despite Damascus’ declaration that large areas of Syrian territory have become safe and stable, especially in the central area and the countryside of the capital.

The number of Syrian refugees who have left their country since the outbreak of the war in 2011 is estimated at more than 5.5 million Syrians, in addition to about 6.7 million others who have been displaced from their areas to other areas inside Syria, according to the statistics of the High Commissioner for Refugees, which corresponds to it, which is matched with the statistics of the countries hosting the Syrians, which say that the real numbers are about double what the commission announced.
