Jordan's Prime Minister Omar Razzaz announced Sunday the launch of a nationwide campaign to provide aid to the displaced Syrians inside Syrian territories.

The announcement was made in a post on his official Twitter account following a visit to the Jordanian-Syrian border aimed at inspecting the conditions of refugees there.

Razzaz said the campaign, which will be carried out through the Jordan Hashemite Charity Organization, seeks to reduce pressure on the Syrians and deliver aid to those in need.

In this context, Chairman of Jordan's Senate Faisal al-Fayez called on the international community to shoulder its moral and humanitarian responsibilities towards ending the suffering of the Syrian people as a result of the crisis they been enduring since 2011.

"The time has come for the conscience of humanity to wake up after the greatest crime in history is being committed against the Syrian people," he said in a statement on Sunday.

He urged international parliamentary action groups to push governments to take swift and serious steps to end the crisis, which has taken a heavy and bloody toll on innocent civilians, including women and children, without any justification, adding that "this tragedy cannot continue."

 

 

In a related development, 17 Jordanian relief trucks entered Syrian territories to deliver aid to the displaced at the border after they fled the violence in southern Syria.

The Jordan Armed Forces supervised the process after making necessary calls and arrangements with the warring sides in Syria to reach a ceasefire to allow the aid delivery to take place unimpeded

Moreover, Jordanians on Sunday started collecting donations, including foodstuff, water, medical supplies and other products, to provide aid and relief to the displaced Syrians.
