"The UNHCR urgently reiterates the need to find solutions for the camp's residents, and is appealing to countries to act urgently on 1,400 cases from Camp Hurriya (Liberty) that have already been submitted for relocation," said the UN's refugee agency in a press release, the Habilian Association reported.
