The first group of Syrian refugees has returned from Turkey to their homes in the border town of Tal Abyad, which was recently retaken from the ISIL Takfiri terrorists.

Nearly 200 men, women and children on Wednesday entered Syria after passing the Turkish border post at Akcakale in Sanlıurfa Province.

The Syrian refugees said they prefer going back home to remaining refugees in another country.
“It’s not so good here... It’s not like home. We want to spend our holy Ramadan in our homeland. We have been looking forward to it,” said Mahmoud, a farmer, referring to the holy Muslim month of Ramadan, which is due to begin this week.

Fahriye, a 40-year-old housewife, also said she is returning home despite fears over the US-led coalition bombings and possible ISIL attacks to once again take over Tal Abyad.

“I’m returning, I left my husband there. But I’m still very afraid of the bombs, how would someone not be afraid of bombs?” she said.

Fighters from the Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG) and their allies managed to recapture the strategic town on Tuesday after several days of fighting against ISIL terrorist. The clashes have forced over 23,000 people from their homes.

The latest gains of the Kurdish forces against ISIL came months after YPG fighters succeeded in pushing the militants from the Syrian city of Kobani.

Tal Abyad’s recapture has dealt a major blow to the ISIL terrorists, who have used the town for illegal oil sales, and for smuggling foreign militants and supplies into Syria.

Retaking Tal Abyad from the terrorists also cuts a main ISIL supply line to the Syrian city of Raqqa, controlled by the extremist militants.
