Humanitarian agencies at the Jordanian border confirmed that tens of thousands of civilians were returning home. The Syrian army offensive on Daraa province had left 320,000 people displaced.
Syrians from the southern Daraa province have begun their journey home, as a result of a deal between Russia and Syrian rebels that sought an end to more than two weeks of deadly bombardments in the area.
But International relief agency CARE told The Associated Press that many Syrians were still refusing to return home out of fear of being detained or conscripted into the army.
Jordan's border remains closed to Syrian refugees. The country says it has already taken in about 1.3 million Syrians. About half that number are registered with the UN.
Deals with rebels
Under Daraa's ceasefire deal, Syrian government forces were to deploy along the Jordanian border, while rebels were to hand over their heavy weapons and given the option of being bused out to rebel-held areas in northern Syria.
The deal between rebels and Russia in Daraa is the latest in a string of such agreements that have allowed Damascus to regain control of rebel-held areas.
