Residents of Al-Rukban camp regularly call on the UN and the US-led coalition to help them address the dire humanitarian situation in the camp, which is besieged by the Syrian regime with no access to aid.
Residents of Al-Rukban camp in southern Syria launched a sit-in on Sunday to protest the lack of humanitarian aid reaching the camp, according to reports by humanitarian volunteers who assist the camp.
“The situation in Rukban is a metaphor for the UN’s and international community’s failure to protect or even provide essential humanitarian aid to a very vulnerable population,” Simone Jeger, a humanitarian activist who has been supporting families in the camp for several years, told The New Arab.
Al #Rukban's residents are staging a sit-in today calling for urgently needed support.
Here is what they have to say in their 'last call to save us':
