Syrians trapped in desert no man’s land. No way forward, no way back from “the berm”
Some 60,000 Syrians are currently trapped in #Rukban and the smaller #Hadalat, makeshift camps in a barren slice of desert at the border between Syria and Jordan. Accounts from the settlements describe a lawless no man’s land where healthcare, food, and water are difficult to access. They are places ruled by violence and fear, threatened by disease and where relief is hard to find. With daytime temperatures topping 40 degrees, the fasting month of Ramadan, which started this week, will be particularly gruelling.
