  • Jordan To Deliver Aid To Syrian Refugees By Cranes

    Jordan

    Agencies (Qasioun) – The Jordanian government announced a plan to use a crane to deliver supplies for more than 70,000 Syrian refugees stranded in terrible conditions on the Syrian-Jordanian borders in “Rakban camp”.

     

    The Jordanian government said on Monday that aid could be delivered without opening the borders – by using crane to lift supplies to the Syrian refugees.

     

    Aid groups in Jordan told the Guardian nothing had been confirmed. But Mohammed Momani, a government spokesman, said in interviews with the Jordan Times and Associated Press (AP) that a plan had been set in motion.

     

    “The new mechanism will be delivering aid on the berm through cranes, and the aid will be given to community leaders of groups of Syrians so they can distribute it accordingly,” he told AP. Aid was previously delivered using a crane once in August.
