Syria, Russia: Al-Rukban camp is like a detention camp, must be evacuated immediately

Moscow, Syria and Russia again called on US occupation forces in al-Tanf area to end the detainment of displaced Syrians in al-Rukban camp and to allow them to leave it and return to their homes.

In a joint statement, the Russian and Syrian coordination committees overseeing the return of displaced Syrians called on the US to evacuate the civilians who suffer the most at al-Rukban camp immediately, namely the sick, the elderly, women, and children.

The statement said the US forces' strict refusal to cooperate is preventing the residents of the camp from returning to their original places of residence, all while the US representatives state that they are not preventing the displaced from leaving the camp in a clear case of misdirection and hypocrisy.

The committees urged the international community to address the disastrous situation of the displaced Syrians in al-Rukban camp on international and local levels, demanding that the American side begin immediate dialogue to take concrete measures and tangible decisions to save the people being detained against their wills in the camp, which is practically like a detention camp.
