US has de-facto occupied part of Syria & hinders humanitarian aid : Moscow

AL TANF SYRIA
All limitations on the access of humanitarian convoys to the Rukban refugee camp in the Al-Tanf area of Syria – which is de-facto occupied by US forces – must be lifted, Russia’s Foreign Ministry has said.


Moscow has firmly emphasized “the need to respect the sovereignty, territorial integrity and independence of Syria in the implementation of humanitarian deliveries and the observance of international humanitarian law.”

Rukban camp is located in the 55-kilometer area around Al-Tanf that is “de-facto occupied by the US armed forces,” with access to the district denied to the country’s lawful authorities, the Russian Foreign Ministry said in a statement.

“The training of militants from illegal Syrian armed groups continues at the US strongholds in the area,” it added.

    The US is “not working and will not work with or through the Assad regime.

    "United States' claims that their troops are allegedly in Syria to fight terrorists are unconvincing and do not stand up to criticism," the Russian Foreign Ministry said in a statement.

    Moscow also stressed that Washington's attempts to justify the use of military measures "against sovereignty and territorial integrity" of Syria were "unacceptable."

    The Russian Foreign Ministry welcomed the recent aid delivery to the people in Rukban refugee camp on the Syrian-Jordanian border, but stressed that Syria's sovereignty and territorial integrity had to be respected when such deliveries are made.
    The ministry pointed out that the camp was within a zone which is de-facto controlled by the US armed forces and the entrance to which is effectively banned for the Syrian government forces or representatives of Damascus.

    A Defense Department spokesperson has told Sputnik recently, that the United States has notified Russia about its willingness to allow a new humanitarian aid delivery to refugees in the camp.

    Haj Adel, coordinator of the peace process and security in Homs province's border areas, said later that the Syrian government, with the support of Russian military specialists, organized the evacuation of refugees from the camp.

    The Russian Foreign ministry said in statement on Thursday that the US attempts to justify the use of military measures “against sovereignty and territorial integrity” of Syria were unacceptable, adding that Washington’s claims that their troops are allegedly in Syria to fight terrorists are unconvincing and do not stand up to criticism.”

    The Russian Foreign Ministry called for lifting constraints imposed on aid delivery to displaced Syrians in the region, adding that Russia has “welcomed the recent aid delivery to the people in Rukban refugee camp on the Syrian-Jordanian border, but stressed that Syria’s sovereignty and territorial integrity had to be respected when such deliveries are made.”

    The ministry said that the camp is located within an area of 55 km including al-Tanf town which is controlled by the US troops, adding that US bases in this area continue to train Syrian militants while the area remains completely closed to international humanitarian convoys.

    The ministry demanded to remove all obstacles hindering the delivery of food and medical assistance materials and increase the transparency of humanitarian operations, considering that US armed forces hold full responsibility for the situation an al-Tanf area.
