At least six Jordanian soldiers were killed and 14 wounded on Tuesday in a car bomb attack on their post on the Syrian border, a security official said.
"Six soldiers have been martyred and 14 others were wounded in the terrorist attack," the official told AFP, speaking on condition of anonymity and adding that it was a "preliminary toll".
The army earlier said in a brief statement that the car bombing had taken place in the Rukban district opposite a Syrian refugee camp.
