Report: Syrian fighting spills over into Jordan
Jordanians living near the Syrian border reported fierce fighting between the Syrian army and rebels in the area on Sunday, adding that the army's ongoing shelling had spilled over into Jordanian villages, forcing residents to leave their homes.


A Jordanian military official told the al-Hayat newspaper that the Syrian regime was attempting to shift the crisis into the Hashemite Kingdom. "We are operating under a state of emergency and have strict orders to respond to any attempt to attack our border," he added. (Roi Kais)
