Since the Al-Qaeda squad of terrorists also know as Al-Nusra Front attacked and took-over major regions of Syria (including Sadad) in 2013, Christians have fled the cities and seek refuge in neighboring nations. But a report to a Russian Media by the Sadadan mayor, Suleiman al Khalil explains that so far, over 150 Christians have returned to their homes and normal lives in Sadad town of Syria.
“Christians who had left Syria for Europe are beginning to return to Sadad and also to other cities,” he said, according to Fides.
The return of the Syrians to their normal homeland was aided by the triumphant efforts of the Russian forces to restore and reclaim the most regions of Syria from the terrorists. This was achieved through the use of Airstrike attacks and land-attacks by Russian soldiers
Sadad was also attacked by ISIS militants in November 2015 in an attempt to conquer the city. Khalil said the return of Christian families to Sadad can be attributed to successful operations conducted by the Russian military followed by a cease-fire agreement, reported Fides.
The partial cease-fire agreement, signed in Munich on February 12, allowed for humanitarian aid to be delivered to across the country.
The mayor of Sadad added that at least at least 100 Christians have returned to the city and another 200 are expected to follow, Fides reported in early April.
