Returning from Al-Rukban to Homs | Regime security services arrest three people from shelter centre

Homs province: SOHR activists have reported that regime security services have arrested three people, after they had returned to regime-held areas in Homs city from Al-Rukban camp.

According to SOHR sources, the arrested people had returned to Homs city from Al-Rukban camp in late October when they settled their security status and inhabited in a school in Homs city, which had been turned by regime forces into a “shelter centre” to people who struck “reconciliations”.

In late October, SOHR sources reported that nearly ten families from Homs, Hama and Daraa left al-Rukban camp, heading to regime-held areas without any guarantees ensuring a safe return for them. The families left the camp which is located on the Syria-Iraq-Jordan border triangle due to the dire living situation in light of the suspension of assistances provided by humanitarian organizations, the astronomically inflated prices of food and essential products and lack of job opportunities in the camp.

It is worth noting that al-Rukban camp turned into a large prison, where its inhabitants prefer staying in the camp to leaving to regime-held areas, fearing arbitrary arrests by the security services.
