Cases are identified on the basis of vulnerability. Only 15% of Syrian refugees in Jordan actually reside in a camp, and therefore UNHCR anticipates that approximately 15% of the 6,000 resettlement cases planned for 2015 will come from the camps, the largest of which is Zaatari.</p><p> </p> more like this
