Pathetic life | Six families leave Al-Rokban camp, heading to “unsafe” regime-held areas in Homs

SOHR activists have reported that six families from Bani Khalid, Al-Fawarah, and Al-Amor tribes left Al-Rokban camp today, heading to regime-held areas in Homs province, without any guarantees of a safe return. The families have left the camp, which is on Syria-Iraq-Jordan border triangle, due to the poor living conditions in the camp. The camp is suffering from inhumane conditions in light of the suspension of assistance provided by humanitarian organizations, high cost of living, and lack of job opportunities. These factors have led to turning the camp into a “large prison” in the Syrian desert.

On December 12, SOHR activists reported that regime security services 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 assistance provided by humanitarian organizations, the astronomically inflated prices of food and essential products, and lack of job opportunities in the camp.
