Pro-U.S. militants torturing residents in Syria's Rukban camp: NGO head

A Survey and dozens of interviews have showed that pro-U.S. militants are present in the Rukban refugee camp in southeast Syria and have been torturing the residents, an NGO head said here Thursday.

At an event organized by Russian United Nation (UN) mission, Maxim Grigoriev, director of the Moscow-based Foundation for the Study of Democracy, presented the findings of a survey of 248 people who had left Rukban as well as 50 detailed interviews.

The former residents said militants had prevented people in the camp from leaving for areas controlled by the Syrian government and that those with a positive attitude toward the government were subjected to pressure, including beatings and torture, destruction of property, and threats to relatives.
