The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) stresses the right of Syrian civilians in Al-Rukban camp to obtain food, drinking water and health and medical care, and calls for intensifying efforts to put an end to the sufferings of the camp’s inhabitants.

SOHR also calls upon all relevant organisations to allow sick people and emergency cases in the camp inhabitant to receive treatment in Jordanian hospitals and/or to open a hospital with specialised doctors inside the camp.
