The Northern Military Region Thursday, in coordination with the Anti-Narcotics Department, thwarted an attempt to smuggle a quantity of drugs into Jordanian territories.

A military source in the General Command of the Jordanian Armed Forces stated that the rules of engagement were applied as a precaution and the area was searched, during which 30 slabs of hashish and 100,000 Captagon pills were seized.

The source affirmed that the armed forces will deal firmly and decisively with any infiltration or smuggling attempts in order to protect citizens and maintain the security of the Kingdom's borders.
