Jordan on Terrorism Alert! Explosive Cars Cross Border

Jordan has gone on alert for the prospect of a spate of suicide strikes. Jordanian sources said authorities suspected that four vehicles packed with explosives have entered the Hashemite kingdom from either Iraq or Syria.

The sources said the vehicles were being prepared for a suicide strike around Western embassies in Amman. “We are positive that there has been an attempt to bring these cars into Jordan, here ” a source said. “We are not sure whether all, salve some or any of these vehicles managed to enter.”

The sources said the car bomb plot was drafted by Al Qaida in Iraq. They said Al Qaida network chief Abu Mussib Al Zarqawi has planned a new series of strikes in wake of the killing of 57 people in coordinated suicide attacks in Amman in December 2005. [source]


  • This is insane, they don’t know whether it was from Iraq or Syria nor do they know if any car has managed to enter, very very smart! what do they know then??

  • I have not seen this story on any major media outlet either in the Arab world or internationally. What is the level of accuracy of this mena newswire? This is not a joke and we need a confirmation
