So Reuters is reporting Syria as ''safe for refugees to return''. https://www.reuters.com/article/us-...try-is-ready-for-refugee-return-idUSKCN1M90IA So two ways of looking at it... 1. Refugees should return home. Neighbouring countries have put them up, sometimes with societal strain as result. Thinking of Lebanon there. The country needs rebuilding and Syrian society should pull together and make a better nation with international aid and investment helping with that reconstruction. Or... 2. They'd be returning to a victorious Assad regime that would be automatically suspicious of anyone who fled the fighting, has a terrible human rights record and their quality of life would be likely to be terrible. And considering Russia/Syria are pushing at Idlib, making more refugees, not exactly a great situation. I'm genuinely conflicted. A rebuilt, thriving, vibrant Syria is obviously the best goal. But the winning side is abhorrent [as was the rebel side granted] but I don't see Turkey, Jordan, Iraq and Lebanon being desperate to host Syrian refugees for the long term.
