Syria and Jordan to reopen border crossing after three years


Syria, Oct 15 (TNS): The border crossing between Jordan and Syria will reopen today after remaining closed for three years.

Technical teams from the two countries met on the Jordanian side on Sunday and agreed on the final arrangements to open the border crossing.

The Syrian government retook the area around the border crossing at Naseeb in July during a weeks-long Russian-backed offensive to drive rebels from their stronghold in southwest Syria.
