Jordan's border control caught a homing pigeon sent by Daesh in Syria, Jordanian border commander Sabir Mahayreh said during a press conference on Wednesday. The information was spread by local media.
The jihadists tied a letter with a phone number to the foot of the bird, which was flying to a Jordanian resident, Mahayreh said, according to Albawaba News.
Previously, the terrorists were trying to send a spy drone from Syria into Jordan that was also captured by the Jordanian border patrol, the source said.
The Al Raqban refugee camp currently has close to 60,000 Syrian refugees. While the camp's population keeps rising, it has a lack of control, oversight and structure.
Interestingly, last year Daesh banned pigeon breeding, because the sight of the birds' genitals seen from the ground when they're flying is offensive to Islam.
As many as 15 people were arrested for breeding pigeons and at least three of them were executed for their hobby, Albawaba News reported.
