Syrian refugees return home from Jordan, Rukban camp

AMMONNEWS - Batches of Syrian refugees returned from Jordan and a southern Syrian camp on Wednesday, according to the state news agency SANA.

The refugees returned to Syria through the Nasib border crossing in the southern province of Daraa.

SANA said that 19,600 refugees returned from Jordan since the reopening of the crossing between both countries late last year.

The Syrian refugees started returning in batches from Jordan since last October when the Nasib crossing between the two countries reopened.

It is estimated that 1.4 million Syrian refugees are located in Jordan, according to Jordanian report.

Meanwhile, SANA said that displaced Syrians left the Rukban camp in southeastern Syria and reached government areas in Homs province on Wednesday, the latest batch that left the battered camp since early this year.

The evacuees from the camp reached the Jlaighem crossing in the eastern countryside of Homs Province in central Syria after leaving Rukban camp near the U.S.-controlled al-Tanf area in the remote southeastern countryside of Homs.

The Rukban camp is home to 50,000 displaced Syrians, who are suffering from the harsh humanitarian situation because of lack of supplies.
