AMMAN: The UN food agency said on Friday it had to suspend aid to Syrians in Jordan because of a lack of funds, but will continue to provide for 211,000 others.
“Due to a lack of funds we had to suspend from the first of September assistance to 229,000 Syrians who live in Jordan, outside (UN) refugee camps,” World Food Programme spokeswoman Dina El-Kassaby said.
However, the WFP will continue to provide aid to 211,000 vulnerable Syrians outside refugee camps, she added.
The United Nations refugee agency UNHCR estimates that more than four million Syrians have fled the civil war that has scarred their country and reportedly killed 240,000 people.
