Mass burials in Damascus suburb amid massacre report
“The number of refugees is growing, and our limited resources are thinning,” Mr. Maaytah said. “The international community should come to the aid of the Syrian refugees.”
The United Nations refugee agency said it has yet to secure half of the $190 million aid appeal launched earlier this year to support Jordan and other countries hosting some 200,000 registered Syrian refugees.
A Jordanian police spokesman, Col. Mohammed Khatib, said a Syrian rocket fell in the northern border town of Ramtha late Saturday, but no injuries were reported. It was the seventh rocket to fall in Jordan in five days, underlining the intensity of the army assault on southern Syrian towns such as Daraa, the birthplace of the uprising against Mr. Assad.
A police statement said 200 Syrian refugees pelted stones on Jordanian security officers guarding their desert camp late Saturday, wounding several policemen. The refugees were protesting poor conditions at the camp.
Associated Press reporters Albert Aji in Damascus and Ben Hubbard on the Turkish-Syrian border contributed to this report.
