map UNOSAT

This map illustrates shelters in the area of the Hadalat crossing on the Syrian-Jordanian border. Using a satellite image collected by the GeoEye-1 satellite on 03 June 2017, UNOSAT located 1,641 probable shelters. This is a 17.5% increase in shelters since the previous UNOSAT analysis done using an image collected 04 May 2017. Due to the small size and the irregularity of the shelters it is likely that some shelters may have been missed in this analysis, or some shelters were included erroneously.
