Syrian Army Takes Jordan Border Crossing From Rebels, State TV Says

Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s troops took control of a key border crossing with Jordan on Friday, three years after it fell to rebel fighters, state-run Syrian TV said.

The capture of the Naseeb crossing, crucial for Syria’s trade with Gulf countries, comes as pro-Assad forces advance in the southern province of Daraa, where the conflict began in March 2011. Rami Abdurrahman, head of the U.K.-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, said Russian military police and Syrian police are expected to deploy at the crossing.
