Personnel of the Jordan Armed Forces-Arab Army (JAF) in the northern military area thwarted 18 people's attempt to sneak to the Jordanian territory through crossing the embankment dam in north-east Syria.
A military source at the General Command of JAF said that the attempt was thwarted within the past 24 hours.
The source added that the rules of engagement were applied, which caused injuries to a number of them, confirming that they all fled to the Syrian territory.
After searching the area, one million and sixty thousand pills of Cepagon, one Kalashnikov and a quantity of ammunition were seized.
The source stressed that JAF will not hesitate to use force if anyone attempts to sneak to the country or smuggle anything and that protecting the Jordanian borders is the main job of JAF in order to keep Jordan as a safe and stable country.
