BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:20 A.M.) – For the first time in several years, the Syrian-Jordanian border is open to the public, a government report said this morning.

According to the report, the Nassib Crossing in the southern countryside of the Dara’a Governorate has been opened just two months after the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) took control of this site.

The Syrian and Jordanian governments have been in talks for weeks about reopening the Nassib Crossing; however, ‘Amman was working on some technical details before they could open it to the public.

With the Nassib Crossing open to the public, trade and commerce will resume between Damascus and ‘Amman for the first time in several years.

This move is especially important for Syria, who has suffered immensely under economic sanctions from the United States and the European Union.

Moreover, the absence of trade with Jordan had crippled the economy in Damascus, as millions of people previously relied on regional goods from ‘Amman.
