AMMAN — Eastern Military Zone personnel, in coordination with security agencies, on Monday foiled an attempt by three persons to infiltrate the border and smuggle drugs from Syria into Jordan.

A source at the General Command of the Jordan Armed Forces-Arab Army said in a statement that the border guard applied the rules of engagement, which led to the retreat of the smugglers into Syrian territory, the Jordan News Agency, Petra, reported.

The source revealed that, after a search of the area, 226 palm-sized sheets of hashish were seized and transferred to the relevant authorities. The source stressed that the armed forces “will deal with full force” with all such attempts to undermine the Kingdom's security.
