About 75,000 Syrian refugees sheltering at a camp in Jordan are virtually cut off from help.

The Jordanian army stopped most humanitarian assistance from getting into the Rukban refugee camp last June.

This happened after seven border guards were killed in a car bombing that was later claimed by the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) group.

Military commanders say ISIL fighters continue to hide inside the camp.
