AMMAN — One Syrian infiltrator was killed and another critically injured after they were spotted attempting to cross from Syria into Jordan on Tuesday morning, according to an official source from the Jordan Armed Forces-Arab Army.  

Border guards immediately dealt with the situation in accordance with the rules of engagement as soon as they detected the infiltrators, the army official source pointed out. 

As a result, one was killed and another was critically injured, according to the army official, who did not give any further details.

Over 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 that could bring harm to Jordan with the necessary force.
