AMMAN — Border guards received 383 Syrian refugees during the past 24 hours, who entered through non-official entry points along the northern border, the Jordan Armed Forces (JAF) said on Tuesday.

A statement by the JAF’s Morale Guidance Department said most of the new refugees are women and children, and also included some injured people and patients in need of medical assistance.

Over 600,000 refugees have taken refuge in Jordan since the Syrian conflict erupted in March 2011.
