    Saudi Arabia will send aid worth $10 million to help Syrian refugees in Jordan, where severe winter weather has compounded their misery, the state news agency SPA reported on Friday

    The first shipment of supplies, including blankets, covers and mattresses, has already been dispatched, the agency said.

    In Jordan's Zaatari camp, housing at least 30,000 Syrian refugees, torrential rain has flooded several hundred tents and forced people to scramble for shelter in prefabricated caravans.

    The unusual chill, accompanied by driving snow and rain, has claimed at least 17 lives in Turkey, Lebanon, Jordan, Israel and the Palestinian territories.

    The frigid weather, some of the worst in the region in years, has raised concern for 600,000 Syrian refugees, displaced people within Syria and civilians, especially those in rebel-held areas where fuel and food are growing scarce.

    Opposition activists say dozens of people have died in Syria in the last four days due to the weather. UNICEF said on Friday more than two million displaced and refugee children were at risk because the conditions hampered access to basic services.

    and these monarchist pigs paid out tens of BILLIONS to keep the civil war in syria going. it is saudi selfishness that they craved for a civil war in syria, but they could show some humanity by paying more for people dislocated by the war than for the weapons they bought for one side in the war. but saudi wahhabis and monarchists have no humanity, and that is why only one tenth of a percent of the money allocated for inciting war and arming rebels is used to help those genuinely affected by the war.

    good going there, saudis!!

    Stab them repeatedly and then give them Band-Aid . So much so for showing compassion . In their Powerplay these countries have ruined lives of millions and killed thousands . Now Look at their Shamelessness . Pathetic .

    Just leave Syria on its own and it will sort itself out instead of poking nose in their Internal Affairs in the Name of Sectarianism .
