A military Tribunal sentenced Jordanian army soldier who killed three American military trainers. He was sentenced to life imprisonment and hard labor.
Americans were killed in November 2016, when he tried to enter the territory of the military base, «Prince Faisal», where he worked. Soldiers standing sentry at the gate opened fire on them.
The Jordanian side has hastened to declare that the instructors continued to move, despite the order to stop. The US has rejected this version, saying that the soldier could be associated with radical groups.
Jordan deployed several hundred American soldiers. Here is located a mothballed aircraft F16. The incident led to a crisis in relations between the two allies.
We will add that in 2015, police captain Jordan killed two American soldiers, two Jordanian and one South African soldier at a training facility in Amman.
