A military source from the Jordanian Armed Forces — Arab Army (JAF) on Wednesday said that the eastern military zone thwarted an attempt to infiltrate and smuggle narcotics from Syria into Jordan.
JAF source said that the operation, carried out in coordination with other security agencies and the Anti-Narcotics Department, led to the killing of three smugglers and injury to others and the seizure of large quantities of narcotics, the Jordan News Agency, Petra, reported.
A Border Guards’ member sustained critical injuries while applying rules of engagement with smugglers, the source said.
The source said that the army will show zero tolerance towards any attempt to undermine the Kingdom’s security and stability and will maintain a firm approach in dealing with such threats.
