AMMAN — A military source at the Jordan Armed Forces-Arab Army (JAF) said the Northern Military Zone, in coordination with the Anti-Narcotics Department (AND) and the Military Security Department on Monday foiled an alleged drug smuggling attempt from Syria to Jordan, the Jordan News Agency, Petra, reported.

The military source added that seven people were trying to cross the border to Jordan where the rules of engagement were applied, resulting in the retreat of all suspects into Syria.

After searching the area, 226,000 Tramadol pills, 40 blocks of heroin and 40 palm-sized sheets of hashish were seized and transferred to the concerned authorities.
