This map illustrates satellite-detected displaced persons shelters in the area of the Rubkan crossing on the Syrian / Jordanian border. Using a satellite image collected by the WorldView-2 satellite on 2 November 2014, UNOSAT located 155 probable shelters in the open desert and along the Jordanian side of the border about 25 kilometers southwest of the Al Waleed border crossing. This is a 17% increase in apparent shelters visible in the previous UNOSAT analysis done using an image collected 01 October 2014. Due to the very small size and irregularity of the shelters it is likely that some shelters may have been missed in this analysis, or some shelter were included erroneously. This is a preliminary analysis and has not yet been validated in the field. Please send ground feedback to UNITAR / UNOSAT.
