2 humanitarian corridors to open for displaced Syrians in Rukban camp

The Syrian and Russian sides will open two humanitarian corridors on Feb. 19 for displaced Syrians in the Rukban camp in southern Syria, the state news agency SANA reported on Saturday.

 

 The opening of the two corridors will allow the displaced Syrians to leave the camp toward government-controlled areas.

 

 The camp is controlled by the rebels near the U.S.-controlled al-Tanf area.

 

 According to the report, the corridors will receive all Syrians including those who had lost their documents.

 

 The Syrians will be provided with facilitation and help, said the report, adding that the Syrian army, in cooperation with the Russian military police, will secure the safety of the displaced people.

 

 Rukban camp is home to 50,000 displaced Syrians, who are suffering from harsh humanitarian situation because of the cold weather and lack of supplies.
