The Russian Defence Ministry has called on the United States and leaders of militants groups to stop holding refugees, at least women and children, in the Rukban Camp.

“We call on the American command and leaders of illegal militant groups in the al-Tanf zone to at least stop forcibly keeping women and children most affected by cold, illness and malnutrition in the camp. All of them will be given necessary assistance”, Russian Defence Ministry spokesman, Maj. Gen. Igor Konashenkov, said Friday.
