The other two drones shot down earlier were carrying small amounts of drugs, mainly methamphetamine and the synthetic stimulant "captagon," produced mostly in Syria.
Jordan routinely announces ground-based anti-drug operations, but attempts to smuggle drugs with drones have proliferated after authorities stepped up border surveillance.
This comes after the first meeting of the Jordanian-Syrian joint committee for cooperation in the fight against drug smuggling. This committee began meeting after Syria was readmitted to the Arab League on May 7, after a 12-year suspension.
Syria has become a drug production center due to the instability caused by the armed conflict that began in 2011. Drugs are exported from its territory to Iraq, Lebanon, Jordan and Turkey.
