AMMAN — The Jordanian Armed Forces-Arab Army (JAF) has killed three infiltrators as they tried to smuggle “large amounts” of narcotics from Syria into the Kingdom, a JAF source said on Tuesday.  The Eastern Military Zone personnel, in coordination with relevant security institutions, applied the rules of engagement foiling a smuggling attempt and killing the three smugglers, the source said, noting that inspection of the area yielded 233,000 Captagon pills and 528,000 palm-sized sheets of Hashish, as reported by the Jordan News Agency, Petra.  The source stressed that JAF will deal "firmly" with these attempts to protect Jordan's borders and prevent any infiltration or smuggling operations and will be vigilant to foil any endeavour to tamper with Jordan's national security.
