    WFP Delivers Life Saving Food to People Stranded at Syria-Jordan Border (For the Media)

    AMMAN – Syrians stranded at the border with Jordan received this week much-needed food and other supplies in a unique operation that saw the aid hoisted by crane across the closed frontier. More than 75,000 people seeking to escape the conflict in Syria are living in an area of earthen embankments between the two countries known as the “berm”. Jordan sealed the area following an attack in June on Jordanian military personnel. Before the border closure, UN agencies and aid organizations regularly delivered supplies from the Jordanian side to people stranded in no man’s land. The success of the operation was a result of joint UN efforts led by the World Food Programme, involving support from the Office of the United Nations Resident Coordinator and Humanitarian Coordinator in Jordan and the Embassy of the United States of America in Amman.
