As many as 13,000 Syrian refugees crossed the border with Jordan over the last week, said head of the Syrian refugee department in the Jordanian government Anmar al-Hamoud.
In statements Saturday, he said the refugees have been taken to Zaatari camp, near the Syrian border, bringing the total number of refugees in the camp to 139,000.
Zaatari is located in the province of Mafraq, 85 kilometers north of Amman.
Since the beginning of 2013, some 89,000 Syrians have fled the violence in their native land and crossed the border to safety in Jordan. Many end up settling in the refugee camp near Mafraq, along the border.
