This map illustrates shelters in the area of the Rukban border crossing on the Syrian-Jordanian border. Using a satellite image collected by the WorldView-1 satellite on 22 October 2016, UNOSAT located 7,116 probable shelters along the Jordanian side of the border, 25 kilometers southwest of the Al Waleed crossing. This is a 14 percent decrease in apparent shelters visible compared to the previous UNOSAT analysis done using an image collected 02 September 2016.
About this Project
The ETC was activated in Syria on 14 January 2013 to provide common telecommunications services to the humanitarian community responding to the crisis both within Syria, and in surrounding countries. Lack of access, insecurity and governmental restrictions complicate efforts to expand ETC services.
