Homs - SMART

The management of the al-Rukban camp on the Syrian-Jordanian border accused the Jaysh Maghawir al-Thawra of the Free Syrian Army of failing to provide aid and food for the internally displaced persons (IDPs) in the camp.

On Tuesday evening, Mahmoud al-Hamili, the camp's head of media, said, "As bringing food from Jordan is impossible, we have the al-Tanaf crossing, 15 kilomters from the camp. The crossing is controlled by the Jaysh Maghawir al-Thawra. Why can they not explore the possibility of entering food through the crossing from Iraq and then to the camp?"

Al-Hamili added, "The Jaysh Maghawir al-Thawra is offering nothing to the camp (…) we just want them to leave us alone and not to buy all the goods in the market in order to store them for later."

Al-Hamili also said, "The camp management met several times with commanders from the Internaltional Coalition and the Jaysh Maghawir al-Thawra to discuss the situation in the camp and the possibility of providing food for the IDPs, but both parties said that their activities are military and they cannot provide anything for the camp."

On Tuesday, the al-Rukban camp management warned that the camp's food will run out in a week, forcing the IDPs to eat donkeys. The management also appealed to humanitarian organizations to provide food and other basic materials a week after the Syrian government forces prevented food entry to the camp.

The al-Rukban camp is located in the Area 55, which includes the International Coalition's al-Tanaf base. Several FSA factions also operate in this area, such as the Jaysh Ahrar al-Ashaer and the Jaysh Maghawir al-Thawra, which is responsible for protecting the camp.
