(NDJ) – Over the past 24 hours, at least 10,000 Syrian children have begun a massive exodus out of Syria, accompanied by frantic parents, out of fear for their lives.

The organization ‘Save The Children’ states the kids are running for their lives literally. Most of the fugitives are being given safe heaven in Jordan.
Director of Save The Children, Saba Al Mobasat, says the Zaatari camp is being overtaxed by the great number of fugitives arriving continuously.
“It’s freezing cold and raining and already the camp is overcrowded with 50,000 residents,” says Saba.
The Zaatari camp in Jordan received a record 3500 fugitive last night. And every hour, four to five buses arrived ‘stuffed’ with more fugitives.
“We’re doing what we can but the situation in the camp is quickly becoming unbearable,” according to Al Mobasat. “And we’re expecting more rain over the next coming days.”
Increased fighting in southern Syria is what is driving the massive evacuation.
