The situation in Syria’s Rukban refugee camp has become “horrible” after several years without sufficient aid, United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) in the Middle East and North Africa Bureau Director Amin Awad told Sputnik. “We just had a mission into Rukban; it was a horrible situation,” Awad said on Thursday after UN humanitarian workers delivered aid to the camp for the first time since January. “People did not receive aid for the last four years. I mean receive aid in substantive manner. Of course, they were receiving cross-border aid from Jordan but it wasn’t enough.” Moreover, the Rukban refugee camp houses terrorists, smugglers and traffickers who use innocent people as human shields, Awad sressed.
