JCD said on Sunday that upon inspecting an empty truck coming from Syria, having an Arab plate number and driven by a man of Arab nationality, two large cartons of cigarettes containing captagon pills were seized and handed over to the pertinent security agencies to take the necessary legal measures.

A JCD source said that Jordanian customs personnel are constantly working with all borders security agencies to protect the national economy and citizens from all forms of smuggling, especially drugs, because of their direct impact on human health.

Meanwhile, heavy gunfire on the Syrian-Jordanian border resulted in the death of four drug smugglers, according to information circulated by Syrian news outlets.

Suwayda 24 said on Saturday that “four bodies were found near the Syrian-Jordanian border, apparently of members of drug-smuggling gangs, who were killed last night.”

It added that the Jordanian-Syrian border witnessed heavy gunfire that damaged several houses in the village of Khirbet Awwad, south of Al-Suwayda.

Another news outlet said that four smugglers were killed while trying to smuggle drugs into Jordan, taking advantage of the bad weather and heavy rain.
