The camp has a population of approximately 83,000 people, in which the camp has descended into a center of crime with prostitution and drugs rampant.

It has also been used a base for anti-Syrian government activity in Jordan.

The camp is managed by the Jordanian Hashemite Charity Organization and many organisations have presence including the United Nations
High Commissioner for Refugees and Doctors Without Borders.
