Hundreds of families have returned to the Damascus suburb of Moadamieh as part of a recent truce, according to Syrian news agency SANA. 

It said Wednesday that residents had been returning to Moadamieh this week, after a climate of calm emerged as a result of a national reconciliation initiative. 

The deal last month saw the national flag raised over the town, as military actions have largely ceased in exchange for an easing of a stringent blockade on residents. 

SANA quoted Hasan Ghandour, the government’s general coordinator of the popular reconciliation initiative, as saying he expected a total of 40,000 people to return to the devastated area over the next few weeks. 

A number of local-level truces have either been negotiated or concluded in recent weeks, mainly in areas surrounding Damascus.
