US hampering humanitarian aid deliveries to Syria's Rukban, al-Tanf and Raqqa

US hampering humanitarian aid deliveries to Syria
The US is blocking deliveries of humanitarian supplies from international organizations to the Rukban refugee camp, al-Tanf and Raqqa, Russian Defense Ministry Spokesman Major General Igor Konashenkov told reporters on Friday.

"Despite the earlier made hopeful statements, US representatives continue to block any deliveries of humanitarian aid to the Rukban refugee camp where about 50,000 Syrians need help, most of them women, elderly people and children," Konashenkov said.

"The US regional command refuses to guarantee safe entry for UN and ICRC (International Committee of the Red Cross) aid convoys, insisting that all products, water and necessities should be transferred only to militant gangs controlled by Americans… The humanitarian situation also remains difficult in Syria’s Raqqa, which turned into a ghost city after the carpet bombing by the international coalition," he stressed.

He stated that "after the release from terrorists Raqqa residents were deprived of the possibility to receive humanitarian aid from international organizations due to the unwillingness of the US to admit convoys from Syrian authorities and international organizations there."

"That said, the US itself and its allies in the ‘coalition’ are not providing any help to residents," the major general noted.
