Syria - Jordan border crossing re-opened
Jordan said Syria reopened its border crossing with the kingdom on Wednesday after about two months following military operations in the southern town of Daraa. “Syria opened today the Daraa post. It is open from 0300 GMT to 1500 GMT,” Taher Adwan, the information minister and government spokesman, told AFP.
Daraa is located about five kilometres from the Jordanian frontier.
Abdul Salam Thyabat, head of trade chamber in the Jordanian border town of Ramtha, said vehicle movement between the two sides are active.
“Hundreds of Jordanian and Syrian crossed the border today. We are very pleased,” he said.
