BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:45 A.M.) – The Jordanian Army has reportedly blocked wounded jihadist rebels from entering their country after the latter launched a massive offensive in Syria’s Dara’a Governorate.
Reports of jihadists being blocked by the Jordanian Army began to surface on Monday evening, when several activists claimed the border was closed following the rebel assault.
A Syrian officer from the 5th Armored Division told Al-Masdar on Tuesday morning that these reports are true, as the Jordanian Army has recently agreed with Russia to tighten their border-security.
Without access to Jordanian field hospitals from the Dara’a Governorate, the jihadist rebels will have no longer have the luxury of having their wounded militants treated in medical facilities outside the country.
