Al-Bunyan Al-Marsoos Operation’s media office said over 1600 families had returned to their houses in Sirte until last Sunday.

In a statement issued on Monday, the media office added that the first stage of the returnees to Neighborhood 700 started on February 05 and ended last Saturday with 585 families making it back home.

It added that the second phase of the Sirte returnees to Neighborhood 3 started last Thursday, saying until last Sunday, 1025 families came back to their houses.

Al-Bunyan Al-Marsoos created a six-stage plan to secure the comeback of the Sirte displaced residents to their houses. Two stages ended as IDPs returned to Neighborhoods 3 and 700, while the third phase will kick off this week.
