A spokesperson from the General Command of the Jordanian Armed Forces (JAF) - Arab Army has officially confirmed that the eastern military region successfully intercepted and shot down a drone originating from Syrian territory Sunday.

This action was taken within the region's designated jurisdiction as part of the JAF's ongoing commitment to secure the Kingdom's security and border protection.

The military's actions are aligned with its unwavering dedication to its patriotic duty toward the nation.

Following a meticulous search and investigation of the area, the drone was located and subsequently handed over to the relevant authorities.

Emphasizing its resolute stance, the source underlined that the JAF remains steadfast in confronting any threat along the border and responds with unwavering resolve to any efforts aimed at destabilizing the nation's security or instilling fear among its citizens.
