Marka camp, referred to by the government as Hitten, was established in 1968 on an area of 0.92 square kilometres, 10 kilometres northeast of Amman. Many camp residents originally came from the Gaza Strip.
The camp is known locally as ‘Schneller’ after the German rehabilitation centre established in the area before the camp was set up. UNRWA installations in the camp also provide services for the refugees in the camp's surroundings.
