AMMAN  — A northern military zone unit has thwarted an alleged drug smuggling attempt on the Jordanian-Syrian border, in coordination with the Anti-Narcotics Department and military security, a military source at the Jordan Armed Forces-Arab Army was quoted by the Jordan News Agency, Petra, as saying.

Rules of engagement were applied after the security forces detected three individuals approaching the Jordanian territory, forcing them to retreat into Syria, according to the source, who added that 277,000 Captagon pills and 16 palm-sized sheets of hashish were seized and transferred to the concerned authorities.
