Throughout Jordan's harshest deserts, Bedouin security forces working for the government have been a key part to the country's security for decades.

The so-called "desert forces" patrol about 82 per cent of Jordan's land to guard against cross-border infiltration, weapon and drug smugglers.

Riding on camels in extreme weather conditions, the nomads have a rare capability and familiarity to manoeuvre through the rugged and rough terrain.

Nisreen El-Shamayleh reports from Wadi Rum in southern Jordan, where she followed a group of the desert forces on patrol.
