Camp for Syrian Refugees in Za`atri established by Jordan

On 6 September 2012, the NATO Euro-Atlantic Disaster Response Coordination Centre (EADRCC) received a request for assistance from Jordan.

Recent events in Syria have resulted in a flow of Syrian refugees into Jordan.

Refugees continue to arrive at a rate of about 1,000 a day. Some 10,200 people arrived in the seven days between August 21-27, compared to 4,500 the previous week. More than 22,000 people have been received at the Za'atri camp since it opened on July 30.
