The border between Syria and Jordan measures 375 km.[1] It was first defined in the 1920-23 Paulet-Newcombe Agreement, as an amendment to the line between the A zone and the B zone in the Sykes-Picot Agreement of 1916.[2][3]

It runs south of the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights along the Yarmouk River, and to the east, passes between Ar Ramtha and Daraa across the Daraa Border Crossing and on to the Nasib Border Crossing on the Amman-Damascus road, and further east to 32°18?40?N 36°50?18?E / 32.3112°N 36.8382°E / 32.3112; 36.8382, where it turns north-east, running in a straight line across the Syrian Desert, terminating in the Jordan-Syria-Iraq tripoint at 33°22?29?N 38°47?37?E / 33.3747°N 38.7936°E / 33.3747; 38.7936.
