AMMAN, June 50 (Xinhua) -- Jordan's State Minister for Media Affair Jumana Ghneimat on Saturday announced that the Jordan Armed Forces began dispatching humanitarian aid to Syrian territory.
The minister said the step is consistent with Jordan's position that the Syrian people on the other side of the border should be assisted inside Syrian territory in order to overcome the current difficult humanitarian situation they are experiencing.
Ghneimat urged the international community to shoulder its responsibilities towards the situation in southern Syria, intensify its efforts to assist the Syrians, and find a political solution to restore security and stability in the country.
She also called on international relief organizations as well as the international community to deliver humanitarian aid to the Syrians.
Thousands of Syrian refugees have started leaving their homes in Syria's Daraa and headed to the borders with Jordan.
On Friday, Ghneimat said that demanding Jordan to open its borders to new Syrian refugees is something the kingdom cannot respond to, adding that Jordan fully understands the difficult humanitarian situation in southern Syria and is aware of the extent of suffering, pain and danger.
She said that Jordan welcomes any agreement to bring calm and protect the lives of civilians, especially children and women, pointing out efforts have been non-stop with all parties to halt the military escalation.
The minister said that Jordan calls on world powers, the international community and relief organizations to play their roles in assisting and protecting the Syrian brothers and provide a formula that protects them and the interests of Jordan.
Jordan hopes that the United Nations will take practical steps to help displaced people and provide them with their living needs, especially in the provision of water, food and medical supplies, she added.
Jordan, which has recently announced that its borders with Syria will remain closed, is home to 1.3 million Syrian refugees.
