A joint military force of the U.S., British, and Jordanian troops, equipped with tanks and helicopters, have reportedly been deployed in the war-torn country’s southern border areas from Jordan’s Northern region.
The troops are now reportedly positioned in a long strip region across the border zones of Daraa and Sweida provinces, from Tel Shahab rural area, just a few hundred meters from the Jordanian border, to al Nasib Border Crossing and Khirbet Awad village.
The forces have also been seen near Jordanian Ramtha city located in the far Northwest of the Arab country close to the Syrian border.
The exact number of the ground troops is not known, but according to local reports, some 2,000 soldiers have been deployed along the border between Syria and Jordan.
Other reports said some 4,000 troops, trained in Jordan, are positioned in al Tanf border area.
