From March 2011 till June 2012, according to Government estimates, more than 120,000 Syrians moved and stayed in Jordan as a result of the unrest. The fact that Jordan has left its borders open to Syrians and is known for its favourable protection climate has further augmented the number of arrivals. Many Syrians arrived already destitute, having had to deplete their resources while still in Syria. Unlike Iraqis who are concentrated in the capital Amman, Syrians have scattered throughout Jordan, with the largest concentrations in the border districts (Irbid and Mafraq) as well as Amman, Zarqa, Karak and Ma’an.
