The Russian Center for Reconciliation in Syria confirmed that the situation in al-Rukban refugee camp continues to deteriorate, while the US command in al-Tanf is impeding solving this problem.
The deputy director of the Russian Center, Marine Major General Vyacheslav Sitnik, said in a statement on Friday, “The humanitarian situation in al-Rukban camp continues to deteriorate rapidly. The American leadership in the al-Tanf region continues to impede the solution of this problem, as it takes additional measures to forcibly detain refugees there.”
He added that “the Syrian authorities are ready to receive all citizens in al-Rukban camp, guarantee their security and provide them with decent living conditions.”
He pointed out that “the reluctance of the United States to ensure the exit of the illegal armed formations and the displaced from the Al-Tanf region confirms that it is concerned with preserving the machine to prepare extremists in order to preserve flashpoints of tension in Syria.”
