The Syrian Arab Red Crescent (SARC), in cooperation with the UN, secured the entry of a humanitarian aid convoy into the al-Rukban Camp in al-Tanf area, near the Syrian-Jordanian borders, where US occupation forces and terrorist groups affiliated to them are hindering the resolution of the humanitarian tragedy in the camp.

On Monday, SARC said in a statement that the convoy consisted of 22 trucks loaded with food relief, including 3,100 food baskets and 3,100 50-kilogram bags of wheat, in addition to date biscuits and peanut butter.

SARC said that the operation should last for seven days, during which 187 SARC volunteers and 22 UN employees will distribute this aid among the thousands of families in the camp, as a step to paving the way to facilitate the exit of families that wish to exit the camp.

The President of SARC, Khaled al-Hboubati, said that seven months have elapsed since the last aid convoy was sent to the camp, and that SARC hasn’t stopped its efforts to provide more aid and facilitate the voluntary exit of people from the camp where they are enduring difficult humanitarian conditions.
