Abu Aqouleh said in a televised meeting on Monday that the road is safe and that the border customs center where goods are cleared and the transit line are far from the area where the Jordan Armed Forces-Arab Army and drug traffickers clashed.

He added that trucks enter and exit Jordan normally, and there is no reason to fear for drivers and goods.

Abu Aqouleh said that work is under way to increase the volume of trade between Jordan and Syria, pointing out that there are restrictions on some goods manufactured in either country.

He also said that there is increase in the traffic of goods to Syria and Lebanon, and expressed hoped that all transit lines will be passable after the customs centers that were closed due to the security conditions and the COVID-19 pandemic are reopened.

The US-led coalition said that Daesh has become a real threat and that it is is assisting its allies, the Syrian Democratic Forces, by launching airstrikes on Daesh militants. It also said that many Daesh detainees who fled prisons during the clashes that took place in Al-Hasakah recently got their weapons from prison guards who were killed.
