Tuesday, the eastern military region thwarted an attempt to infiltrate and smuggle large quantities of narcotic substances coming from Syrian territory.

An official military source in the General Command of the Jordanian Armed Forces - the Arab Army (JAF) said that the rules of engagement were applied, which led to a number of smugglers getting injured, after which they retreated into Syria.
