This map illustrates shelters in the area of the Hadalat crossing on the Syrian-Jordanian border. Using a satellite image collected by the WorldView-2 satellite on 18 July 2017, UNOSAT located 1,656 probable shelters. This is a 0.06% decrease in shelters since the previous UNOSAT analysis done using an image collected 27 June 2017 and also a 22.3% decrease compared to the analysis done 13 July 2016. Due to the small size and the irregularity of the shelters it is likely that some shelters may have been missed in this analysis, or some shelters were included erroneously. Due to the scale of this map and the lack of suitable border information at this scale, the border in this map has been excluded. This map is intended for field support and local authorities should be consulted for boundary information. This is a preliminary analysis and has not yet been validated in the field. Please send ground feedback to UNITAR-UNOSAT.
