AMMAN —Border Guards foiled on Monday an infiltration attempt by three people to cross the borders from Syria into the Kingdom, as an informed sourced from the Jordan Armed Forces-Arab Army (JAF) said.

The guards responded to the situation in line with the rules of engagement followed in such cases, which resulted in the infiltrators’ escape towards Syrian territory.

In the same incident, the guards seized two million Captagon pills which were referred to specialised authorities, the JAF source added.
