US Traps Over 50,000 People by Sealing Zone Around Its Base in Syria – Moscow

The humanitarian situation in Syria’s At Tanf is extremely difficult, as refugees in the neighboring Rukban camp cannot get access to humanitarian and medical aid due to the US’ actions, according to the Russian military.

The US has banned anyone from coming within 55 kilometers of its military base in At Tanf, Syria, on the nation’s border with Iraq, depriving more than 50,000 refugees in the Rukban camp, which is located in close proximity to the base, from getting humanitarian assistance, Head of the Russian center for Syrian reconciliation Sergei Kuralenko said during a news briefing.

Kuralenko added that “despite the consultations held earlier, the American side has still not provided access to the Rukban camp for humanitarian agencies.”
