AMMAN — His Majesty King Abdullah, the Supreme Commander of the Jordan Armed Forces-Arab Army (JAF), on Wednesday visited one of JAF’s Border Guard units on the northern frontlines, according to a Royal Court statement. 

The King was received by Chairman of the Joint Chiefs-of-Staff Gen. Mashal Al Zaben, who is also the King’s military adviser, and Border Guard commanders. King Abdullah spent some time with the unit’s personnel, checked on their conditions and congratulated them on Eid Al Adha. 

 

His Majesty commended the distinguished level and the high morale of the Border Guards as they defend the Kingdom’s frontiers. He particularly lauded their humanitarian efforts in assisting Syrian refugees, the Royal Court said, adding that the soldiers expressed their loyalty to the Hashemite leadership and congratulated King Abdullah on the Eid occasion.
