  • Description

    On Sunday (25 July), Syria closed its border with Jordan in protest against what it called the liquidation of the Palestinian Resistance Movement, and the shelling of Syrian villages by Jordanian troops. A week ago, Iraq closed her borders and air space to Jordan for the same reason.

    With the closure of the Syrian border, Jordan is left with only two land outlets -- to Saudi Arabia across the desert, and to Israel across the River Jordan. Jordan's trade and exports were expected to be affected by the closing of the Syrian border. Port installations at the Gulf of Aqaba remain as Jordan's unaffected trade route.
