Update: Rubkan Border Crossing IDP Settlement, Jordan-Syria Border (01 October 2014)


This map illustrates satellite-detected internally displaced persons (IDP) shelters in the area of the Rubkan crossing on the Syrian / Jordanian border. Using a satellite image collected by the WorldView-2 satellite on 1 October 2014, UNOSAT located 132 probable IDP shelters in the open desert and along the Jordanian side of the border about 25 kilometers southwest of the Al Waleed border crossing. This is a 47% increase in IDP apparent shelters visible in the previous UNOSAT analysis done using an image collected 25 July 2014.
