DAMASCUS, April 22 (Xinhua) -- As many as 1,000 people left the al-Rukban camp in southeastern Syria on Monday to government-controlled areas, a war monitor reported.

The batch is the largest to leave the battered rebel-held camp since the evacuation of people from the camp began earlier this month, according to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.

With the latest batch, a total of 3,100 people have already left al-Rukban to government areas in the central province of Homs, said the UK-based watchdog group.

The Rukban camp is home to 50,000 displaced Syrians, who are suffering from the harsh humanitarian situation because of the cold weather and lack of supplies.
