Upon investigation, it was discovered that the intercepted drone was carrying 500 grams of crystal narcotics. The confiscated drugs were immediately handed over to the appropriate authorities for further handling.

The destruction of the narcotics-loaded drone follows a previous event on February 28th when Jordan foiled an attempt to smuggle weapons and grenades using a drone from Syria. According to the source, the drone had been booby-trapped in case it was seized by border guards. However, a specialized engineering team successfully dealt with the situation, apprehending the drone and transferring the seized items to the competent authorities.
