AMMAN — Border Guards on Wednesday killed an infiltrator and injured another after they tried to cross from Syria into Jordan, a Jordan Armed Forces-Arab Army (JAF) source said. Border Guards immediately dealt with the situation in accordance with the rules of engagement as soon as they detected the infiltrators, the source noted.

During the past months, border surveillance troops have detected, and arrested or killed a number of infiltrators, mostly narcotics smugglers and suspected terrorists. The army has repeatedly stressed that it would deal with any attempts to cross the border, in any direction, and schemes to harm Jordan and Jordanians with the necessary force.
