Syria-Jordan Border Crossing Reopens After 3 Years of Closure

On Monday Jordan reopened its main border crossing with Syria, after a three year closure, AFP reports.

The border crossing, known as Jaber on the Jordanian side and Nassib on the Syrian side, is a key Middle Eastern trade and commerce transit way which was closed after the post was overrun by Western and Gulf-backed terrorist in April 2015. The crossing was a major link not only for direct trade between the neighboring countries but also for longer-distance transit as well a significant source of revenue.

Reopening comes after Syrian Army retook crossing under deal agreement between ‘rebels’ brokered by Russia.

According to a bilateral agreement between Syria and the Kingdom of Jordan, all passenger and goods traffic will resume daily from 5am to 1pm.

This latest news has coincided with reopening of the Quneitra crossing between Syria and Israel’s illegally occupied side of Syria’s Golan Heights.
