Jordan opens Syria refugee camp for 130,000 people

Published: 04.30.14, 11:43 / Israel News

AMMAN - Jordan is opening a new, sprawling tent city to accommodate tens of thousands more Syrian refugees who are expected to flee fighting as their nation's civil war continues unabated, a UN official said.

 

Jordanian officials will open the Azraq refugee camp on Wednesday, about 90 kilometers (55 miles) from the Syrian border.

 

The United Nations says the camp will ultimately host 130,000 people, as many as there are now in Zaatari, currently Jordan's largest camp. (AP)
