Opening of Syria-Jordan border crossing to revitalize economy: Aoun

A picture taken on July 6, 2018 shows Syrian government soldiers arriving at the Nassib border crossing with Jordan in the southern province of Daraa, after they regained control over it from rebel forces. The Nassib crossing was overrun by rebels in April 2015, sealing off the regime's crucial trade route with neighbouring Jordan, which calls it Jaber. With the crossing's recapture two weeks into a Russian-backed offensive, the government hopes it can reopen the vital trade lifeline. / AFP / Mo
