AMMAN — The Northern Military Zone, in coordination with the concerned agencies, during the past 48 hours foiled an attempt to smuggle a large amount of narcotics from Syria into the Kingdom, a source at the Jordan Armed Forces-Arab Army (JAF) said on Saturday.

The source said that the army personnel applied the rules of engagement, which led to the retreat of smugglers into Syrian territories, the Jordan News Agency, Petra, reported. Upon searching the area, the personnel found 746,000 Captagon pills, 29,529 Galica  pills and 46,166 other narcotic pills that were all referred to the concerned agencies.
