The source said that the army applied the rules of engagement, which lead to the arrest and injury of a number of the people involved. All those arrested will be transferred to the competent authorities for the suitable legal action to be taken.

The source stressed that the Jordanian Armed Forces-the Arab Army will continue to apply full force to foil all infiltration or smuggling attempts to protect Jordan and its citizens.
