Jordan closes the Jaber border crossing with Syria and explains the reason
The official Jordanian news agency, quoting an official at the Ministry of Interior, said today, Saturday, that the Jaber border crossing with Syria will be temporarily closed to the movement of goods and passengers "as a result of the developments in the security situation on the Syrian side."
The official added that the crossing will be reopened "if the appropriate conditions are created."
Daraa Governorate, in southern Syria, adjacent to the Jordanian border, has been witnessing a war since the early hours of Thursday morning, starting from the eastern countryside of the province, passing through the city and reaching the western countryside, between government forces and their security services on one side, and local militants on the other, according to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.
