Israeli officials are present in Jordan working to assist Syrian refugees, Deputy Minister Ayoub Kara revealed on Thursday.

Speaking at a conference in Jerusalem, Kara said that he had “representatives” in Jordan making efforts to assist children and infants who have been injured in the Syrian military’s ongoing violent crackdown throughout the country.

It is the first time that Israelis are known to be working in Jordan to help Syrian refugees.

Kara, a Druse member of the Likud Party, said that one of the people he sent to Jordan was his bureau chief, who was working alongside representatives from Israeli humanitarian organizations.

“They are in Jordan trying to help people who have been hurt in Syria,” he told The Jerusalem Post, confirming that the representatives he was referring to were Israeli citizens.

“They are there as part of the international assistance [to Syria] and not in the framework of the regime or government,” he said, adding that the focus now was on trying to get medicine and medical treatment to children and infants who have been injured in Syria.
