JORDANIAN BORDER GUARDS RECEIVE 301 SYRIAN REFUGEES
AMMAN, Jordan, – A total of 301 new Syrian refugees from various age groups, crossed into the Kingdom during the last 24 hours, a military source said.
The source said, Border Guards provided the refugees with the necessary aid before transferring them to refugee camps.
The Jordanian Royal Medical Services’ personnel, administered first aid to refugee patients, through their medical centres at the borders, the source added.
Over the past four years, Jordan has been a safe haven for a massive and unprecedented number of Syrian refugees, who have settled in the country’s northern and central governorates.
The spillover effects of the Syrian refugee crisis, are taking a heavy toll on the Kingdom’s burdened economy and already-limited resources, especially on the most vulnerable segments of the population, in the northern region, where over half of the Syrian refugees currently reside.
Jordan Response Plan 2015′ (JRP 2015), estimates, the total number of Syrian refugees to be around 1.5 million, almost 650,000 of which are registered as refugees.
