Jordan: Displaced Syrians from Daraa receive Jordanian aid at Jabir crossing

As many as 700 people displaced by the fighting in Syria's Daraa have received treatment upon arrival at a field hospital set up at the Jabir border crossing in Jordan, as seen in footage from Thursday. Patients including senior citizens and infants received treatment inside tents located in the specially established 'Jordanian-Syrian Free Zone.' Around 700 patients have reportedly received... Еще treatment at the crossing point, with around 60 of the more serious cases having been transferred to government hospitals inside Jordan proper. The provision of care comes after Jordan announced in late June that it would not accept any more Syrian refugees, and would instead provide aid to displaced people at border areas and on Syrian soil. According to a report by the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA), as many as 60,000 Syrians have fled to the Nasib and Jabir border crossings with Jordan. At least 270,000 people have been displaced in the Daraa region since June 20, due to the intense fighting there between the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and militants, according to the United Nations Refugee Agency (UNHCR).
