Meanwhile, Russian Health Ministry spokesman Sergei Grabchak on Friday said that more than one hundred people have died in the Rukban camp over the past month due to poor hygienic conditions and lack of medical assistance, according to the Russian TASS news agency.
“[The convoy] was able to reach and deliver supplies, food, health items, sanitary items, water purification, health items, for all of the population for at least a month,” he said.
However, Fadwa Baroud of the UN office of the Resident Coordinator told The National, that not everyone has received assistance.
“The UN received reports from some families in Rukban that they did not receive the full amount of assistance they were entitled to or did not receive assistance at all,” she said.
The organisation is following up with the local administration and relief committee in Rukban to ensure all families receive the assistance, Ms Baroud said.
The UN said another delivery was planned by mid-December.
