BEIRUT, Feb. 13 (Xinhua) -- Around 1,335 Syrian refugees returned on Thursday to their homeland from different areas in Lebanon, local media reported.

The return of Syrian refugees was organized by the General Security Directorate by using trucks to transport refugees and their furniture, according to Elnashra, an online independent newspaper.

More than 950,000 Syrian refugees are registered with the United Nations Higher Commission of Refugees (UNHCR), though the government estimate of the total Syrian displaced population stands at 1.5 million.

The flow of Syrian refugees to Lebanon has weighed heavily on Lebanon's economy and infrastructure, prompting Lebanese officials to urge the international community for support in guaranteeing the return of refugees. Enditem
