Jaydet-Yabus, Syria, Aug 28 (Sputnik) - The number of refugees who returned to Syria from Lebanon in August, when a deadly blast hit the port of Beirut, doubled compared to July, an official with the Russian Defense Ministry's center for Syrian reconciliation told reporters on Friday.
"Over August, there were twice as many Syrian refugees [returning] from Lebanon than over the previous month. So far, 3,227 people have left [Lebanon]," Ruzal Akhmedzyanov, the head of the refugee checkpoint at the Syrian-Lebanese border near the Jaydet-Yabus settlement, said.
He noted that many of those Syrian citizens who returned home in August had lost their jobs in Beirut after the blast.
