Syria: returning home for first time since civil war began

Channel 4 News published this video item, entitled “Syria: returning home for first time since civil war began” – below is their description.

About 100,000 Syrians, out of four million refugees in Turkey, have been allowed temporary rights to visit their homeland during the Eid al-Adha holiday.

Among them is Faezah, who has managed to make her first trip back to her old home in the town of Binnish, in Syria’s northern Idlib province.

The entire region remains highly dangerous, and as she discovers the reality is proving very different to the memories of the place she once called home.
