Syrian Humanitarian Crisis Growing More Dire

More than three years after the start of the Syrian war, the humanitarian plight of more than 6 million people displaced inside Syria and the 2.5 million refugees scattered in the region is growing more dismal by the day and is currently considered the worst humanitarian crisis in the world. In the latest sign of the increasingly troubled outlook, a new refugee camp is scheduled to open in Jordan later this spring. The new Azraq camp is expected to relieve some of the pressure from the sprawling Za’atari camp.
