AMMAN — Syrian refugees at the Rakban camp in the no-man’s-land between the Syrian and Jordanian borders received a new batch of aid on Wednesday, according to Tribal Council of Palmyra and Badia.

According to the UN, more than 85,000 Syrian refugees are stranded at Rakban settlement in the no-man’s land between Jordan and Syria.

Jordanian officials have put the number at more than 100,000, but there are reports of Syrians leaving the makeshift camp back to their homes.
