At least three American military trainers were shot dead in Jordan on Friday when the car they were traveling in failed to stop at the gate of a military base and was fired on by Jordanian security forces, a Jordanian military source said.
“There was an exchange of fire at the entrance to the base after an attempt by the trainers' vehicle to enter the gate without heeding orders of the guards to stop,” the military source said.
The incident occurred at the Prince Faisal air base in southern Jordan. US officials have not responded to the Jordanian version of the fatal incident.
Our unique angle on these subjects – and strong intelligence dimension – has earned DEBKAfile a global reputation and a steady readership – which skyrockets in times of crisis.
