Field Medicine Director Brig. Gen. Salem Zawahreh said that 43 displaced Syrians, who required medical attention, have been admitted to public hospitals in Jordan.

In light of recent events, tens of thousands of displaced Syrians fled the southern city of Daraa toward the Jordan-Syrian border.

The Jordanian Royal Medical Services have offered treatment to 400 cases in the past five days, out of which 43 cases were admitted into Jordanian public hospitals, as their condition was relatively more difficult. These cases included injuries, fractures, burns, chronic diarrhea, in addition to three cases of childbirths, Petra news agency reported on Tuesday.

Zawahreh pointed out that "light injuries are medicated on the Jordanian-Syrian border and then returned to Syrian territory."
