“Out of frying pan, into fire” | 75-year-old elderly man arbitrarily arrested after fleeing dire conditions in Al-Rukban camp

Regime security forces have arrested a 75-year-old man from a shelter in Homs city and took him to intelligence branch of Palmyra desert, four unknown charges.

It is worth noting that the elderly man struck a settlement deal in a shelter centre in Homs province and recently left Al-Rukban camp nearly two months ago, as he suffered from incurable skin disease.

It is worth noting that many of the residents of Al-Rukban camp are forced to head to areas controlled by the Syrian regime due to the dire living conditions, facing the unknown future.

On November 6, SOHR activists reported that a civilian of “Bani Khalid” tribe from Deir Baalaba city in northern Homs countryside was arrested, after arriving in Homs city from Al-Rukban camp on Syrian-Iraqi-Jordanian borders.

According to reliable SOHR sources, the civilian was previously released for 12,000,000 Syrian Liras, before undergoing reconciliation with the regime. However, he was arrested again yesterday in Homs city.
