CNN: 6 Jordanian security forces killed in car bomb attack on Syrian border
Amman, Jordan (CNN)At least six members of Jordan's security forces were killed Tuesday in a car bomb attack launched from the Syrian side of the border, according to the Jordanian armed forces.
The car bombing, which Jordan's government described as a "cowardly terrorist attack," killed four border guards, a civil defense worker and a national security official, a military statement said.
King Abdullah II's advisor for military affairs, Gen. Mashal Mohammad Al Zabin, ordered the northern and northeastern border areas with Syria closed, according to a military statement. Any individuals or vehicles in the area without prior coordination will be considered enemy targets by security officials, the military said.
The attack took place at 5:30 a.m. local time (10.30 p.m. Monday ET) in an area known as the Berm, along Jordan's northeast border with Syria.
