SULAIMANI — Jordan will close for a week its only land trade border crossing with Syria after a spike in COVID-19 cases coming from its northern neighbour, officials said on Wednesday (August 12).

They said the interior minister’s decision to close the main Jaber border crossing would come into effect on Thursday morning.
