Syrian refugees head to Aleppo from Turkey for Eid holiday

The Syrian refugees are able to head home for the Eid holiday for the first time in almost 10 years.

    Muslims across the world are looking forward to celebrating the Eid festival later this week.

    And for some Syrian refugees living in Turkey, the holiday will be extra special this year.

    Many families travelling to Aleppo from Turkey for the Eid festival hope the day is not too far away when they can return home permanently.

    Al Jazeera's John Joe Regan reports.
