King Abdullah II, the Supreme Commander of the Jordan Armed Forces visited on Wednesday the Eastern Military Region to underscore the crucial role played by border guards.
This region shares boundaries with Syria and Iraq, making it particularly vulnerable to the threats posed by terrorist organizations like ISIS and drug trafficking from Syria.
Jordan has taken several steps to enhance its border security:
Jordan employs advanced surveillance technology, including drones and monitoring systems, to closely watch its borders. This technology helps detect any suspicious activities or attempted infiltrations. The Jordanian military maintains a strong presence along its borders with Syria and Iraq. This not only serves as a deterrent but also allows for swift responses to any security breaches.
The country actively collaborates with international partners, sharing intelligence and information related to potential security threats. This cooperation extends to other countries in the region and beyond.
King Abdullah has played a pivotal role in ensuring Jordan's security against terrorism. His commitment to national security is unwavering, and he actively engages with security forces to assess the readiness and effectiveness of border protection measures.
He maintains diplomatic relations with countries in the region to foster cooperation in combating terrorism. He also advocates for global collaboration in addressing the root causes of extremism.
The King recognizes the importance of engaging local communities near the border regions. This involves community-based programs to counter radicalization and ensure cooperation with security forces.
Jordan's strategic location in a turbulent region underscores the significance of its border security efforts.
