AMMAN — The Public Security Department’s (PSD) personnel have arrested 956 people for allegedly possessing a total of 1,125 firearms since the launch of the department’s campaign on June 27 to curb festive firing and the ownership of unlicensed firearms.

In a statement carried by the Jordan News Agency, Petra, the PSD said that 71 people, in possession of 81 guns, were arrested during the 11th week of the campaign, including two minors and seven non-Jordanian Arab nationals.

The PSD noted that the campaign will continue its crackdown and thanked the citizens who contributed to combatting the phenomenon, according to Petra.
