Syria and Syrian refugees

It is unfortunate what is happening in Syria.

Jordan continues to have no role in the Syrian conflict and considers it an internal issue.

The extent of Jordan's involvement is to provide aid to refugees that flee to Jordan seeking safety.

The overwhelming majority of the refugees are women and children.

Jordan with the help of the relevant UN and international organizations is providing refugee camps in the northern part of the country.

From time to time gunfire and explosions that take place inside Syria are heard in the areas close to the Syrian border on the Jordanian side.

A number of times small rockets have landed on Jordanian soil near the border line causing no injuries.

Syria lies along the northern border of Jordan.

Most of the touristic attractions are far away south from the border with Syria.
