Migrant crisis: Nato deploys Aegean people-smuggling patrols - BBC News
Is it becoming a national security? // The announcement followed a request from Turkey, Germany and Greece at a defence ministers' meeting in Brussels. Mr Stoltenberg said the mission would not be about "stopping or pushing back refugee boats". Nato, he said, will contribute "critical information and surveillance to help counter human trafficking". US defence secretary Ashton Carter earlier said that targeting the "criminal syndicate that is exploiting these poor people" would have the greatest humanitarian impact. The decision was made to help Turkey and Greece "manage a human tragedy in a better way than we have managed to do so far," Mr Stoltenberg, Nato Secretary General, said. [...] Nato's Standing Maritime Group 2, which is under German command, will lead the operation in co-operation with Greek and Turkish coastguards. Almost 75,000 migrants and refugees have already arrived in Greece by sea in 2016, the UN refugee agency says. //&! bit.ly/1PEY7jJ

Unexpected Consequences of German Dependence on Turkey - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Chancellor Angela Merkel asked Turkey to help reduce the number of refugees coming to Europe. But instead of closing its Aegean coast to migrant smugglers, Ankara shut its border with Syria, making it difficult for those threatened by the war to leave.

Syria conflict: Jordan's Zaatari refugee camp from the air - BBC News
Many of those forced to leave their homes during the Syrian conflict have taken refuge in neighbouring countries, and 80,000 of them are now living in a three-square-mile piece of the desolate Jordanian desert - home to the sprawling Zaatari refugee camp. King Abdullah says his country is at "boiling point" because of the influx of refugees.

Syrian refugees in Jordan: 'If they cut the coupons, we will probably die' | World news | The Guardian
There are between 630,000 and 1.27 million Syrian refugees in the country, depending on whose estimate you believe. Like most of them, Umm Majd’s husband does not have the right to work – so he works illegally as a carwasher for 100 Jordanian dinars a month (about £100, half the minimum wage).

Syria refugee crisis: six charts that show how Europe is struggling to respond | World news | The Guardian
Of the 1.2 million asylum applications filed, 356,805 were from Syrian applicants. The number of first-time applicants has grown hugely in the past five years. The increase in the number of people seeking asylum in Europe has been driven primarily by applications from Syria, Afghanistan and Iraq. [...] In Germany, one of the few EU countries to have reported full-year figures for 2015, there were almost 442,000 first-time asylum applications in 2015 alone: over a third of these by Syrians. Going through paperwork takes time, though; the country registered 428,468 Syrian arrivals last year. As a proportion of population, the most applications have been received in Hungary (649 applications per 100,000 population), Sweden (528 per 100,000 population) and Austria (where there were 273 applications per 100,000 population up to the end of November). //&! bit.ly/1o5FdLQ // Cameron Pays Up to keep them away and voters happy - bit.ly/1R3rJf5 &! bit.ly/1Kr9kqZ

Interview with Former UN Peace Envoy to Syria Lakhdar Brahimi - SPIEGEL ONLINE
USA World Police no more. [...] ISIS - The Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant. [...] SPIEGEL: What is your prediction for the future of Syria and the region? Brahimi: Unless there is a real, sustained effort to work out a political solution, there is a serious risk that the entire region will blow up. The conflict is not going to stay inside Syria. It will spill over into the region. It's already destabilizing Lebanon, there are 1.5 million refugees in the country; that represents one third of the population. If it were Germany, it would be the equivalent of 20 million. It is destabilizing because ISIS | SPIEGEL: the most radical and brutal armed opposition group, which seeks to establish a militant Islamic state | Brahimi: is active in both Syria and Iraq already, and Jordan is really struggling to continue resisting. Even Turkey! According to a senior Iraqi official, ISIS has carried out 100 operations in Syria and 1,000 operations in Iraq in just three months. | YT v=XDFi1lno1bs
