To ask the Secretary of State for Defence, what protection UK and Allied forces can provide to internally displaced persons in (a) Rubkan camp and (b) northern Syria.
As part of the Coalition, UK aircraft are providing support to the Syrian Democratic Forces who are clearing the last pocket of territory held by Daesh in Syria. The UK remains at the forefront of the humanitarian response to the Syria crisis. UK aid is providing life-saving support to millions of displaced Syrians, including those in acute need at Rukban camp and across northern Syria. I refer the right hon. Member to the answer given by my right hon. Friend the Minister for International Development (Alistair Burt) on 14 March 2019 to Question 229602.
