A large number of civilians have begun returning to the provincial capital of Deir Ezzor after more than six years of war.

Hundreds of civilians were filmed by the Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA) leaving the capital city of Damascus for the Deir Ezzor Governorate this week.

Thousands more expected to return to Deir Ezzor via the Damascus-Sukhnah Highway in the coming weeks, as the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) ensures the security of this major roadway.

ISIS was expelled from Deir Ezzor on November 3rd, marking the end of their reign over a large part of the provincial capital.
