drugs smuggling

Quantities of drugs and contraband are often smuggled through these marches, and the Jordanian army has recently managed to bring down many of them.

The Jordanian forces have been active for years in thwarting the smuggling of weapons and drugs coming from the Syrian territory, especially after it turned into a platform for smuggling drugs, especially Captagon, by the militias.

Amman considers drug smuggling, across the Jordanian-Syrian border, which extends at a distance of about 375 km, to be an “organized operation” that uses drones and is protected by armed groups.

Especially since Syria is a prominent source of Captagon, which is one of the types of stimulating amphetamines, which usually mix amphetamines, caffeine and other substances, since before the war broke out in 2011, according to AFP.

However, the conflict made it more popular, used and exported, especially by militias.
