Jordan: Army Kills 5 People Approaching Border From Al-Tanf

Jordan's army said on June 11 its border guards killed five people who were approaching its frontier from al-Tanf, a Syrian town where U.S. special operations forces training rebels are based, Reuters reported. The Jordanian army statement did not give any details of the identity of the men and whether they were smugglers or militants in the area where Jordan's northeastern borders meet Iraq and Syria. Al-Tanf has been a flashpoint in recent weeks, as pro-Syrian government militias have tried to get near the U.S. garrison, prompting U.S. coalition jets to launch airstrikes.
