What is effect of Syria regime’s recapture of Jordan crossing?

Retaking of main border crossing that reconnects trade route from Turkey and Lebanon to Arabian Peninsula could have serious economic effects.

When Syrian government forces retook control of the main border crossing with Jordan, they reconnected a trade route that runs from Turkey and Lebanon down to the Arabian Penninsula.

With the economy in Jordan struggling, the restored route could be important to the nation hosting some 650,000 Syrian refugees.

Al Jazeera’s Bernard Smith reports on the impact the reopening of the Naseeb-Jaber crossing will have on Jordan’s economy.
