On April 16 more than 700 refugees left the Rukban camp through the Jleb checkpoint.
Those who managed to leave the camp say that JayshMaghawir al-Thawramilitants are doing their best to hide information about the Jleb checkpoint functioning.
Militants take away refugees’ cell phones, TV sets, radios and other devices. That is why people in the Rukban camp cannot hear the news that the Syrian government is ready to provide refugees with dwelling, free food, articles of daily necessity and medical help.
Militants cannot take away 40 000 refugees’ phones so their American patrons help them if necessary. Since the Jleb checkpoint started functioning the American military base launched an installation that jams cellular signal.
Actually, the information about the functioning Jleb corridor is already spreading in an uncontrollable way. Despite the American censorship, the Rukban refugees already learn it is possible to leave the camp via social nets and now this information is getting around.
