[PHOTOS] Jerash 'Ex-Gaza' Refugee Camp

The Jerash camp is located just short of an hour's drive north of Amman in Jordan.

Referred to as Gaza Camp, Jerash is to home to Palestinian refugees who fled the Gaza Strip after the 1967 Arab-Israeli war.

Unlike other Palestinians in Jordan, the "ex-Gaza" refugees at Jerash were not given Jordanian citizenship, and do not have rights to own property or work in the country.
