The Border Guard Forces are organised in 18 border guard regiments totaling approximately 25,000 members. The Border Guard Forces are a lightly armed paramilitary unit, mostly Bedouins, responsible for border surveillance, general peacekeeping, drug interdiction, and prevention of smuggling. During the late 1980s, the force was equipped with remote sensors, night-vision binoculars, communications vehicles, and high-speed motorboats. The Border guards Were originally under the control of the Ministry of Defense, however control was almost immediately given to the Ministry of Interior after their creation.
