The Jordanian army said on Friday that units on the country’s eastern border shot down a drone carrying weapon parts from Syria.
Border guards, in coordination with other security agencies, spotted the drone and downed it on Jordan’s side of the border, an army statement said.
The drone was found to be carrying weapons parts, the army said, adding that it will continue to deal with “any threat to our borders, and any attempt to destabilize the security of the country and terrorize its people.”
It was the second drone to be shot down by the Jordan army in a week.
On June 14, it downed a drone carrying highly addictive crystal methamphetamine drugs from Syria into Jordan’s northern region.
