Jordan declared the area around the Rukban border crossing a “closed military zone” in June, after a suicide bombing claimed by the Islamic State group killed seven soldiers near a makeshift desert camp where more than 100,000 Syrians are stuck. This cut off aid access to the Syrians, who have been gathering at the border for months attempting to flee their country’s five-year civil war into Jordan.
