An army statement, citing a military source, said border guards had foiled an attempt to smuggle an amount of drugs on Monday by two people trying to cross border from Syria into Jordan.
The source said the forces had applied the rules of engagement taken in such cases, killing the two infiltrators.
Jordan shares a 375-kilometer border with next-door Syria, which fell into civil war in 2011.
