WHO expressed “severe concern” today over the conditions in the Rukban settlement in Syria, located near the border of Jordan, where approximately 40,000 people remain stranded.
In a statement, the organization requested immediate access to the settlement to examine the health conditions there, as well as provide medical treatments and supplies and to evacuate any patients who are critically ill.
