JNS.org – Jordan’s King Abdullah vowed to strike back “with an iron fist” following a suicide bombing attack that killed six soldiers in a remote area near the Jordanian border with Syria on Tuesday.

“Jordan will respond with an iron fist against anyone who tries to tamper with its security and borders,” Abdullah said during a meeting with senior military officials, AFP reported.

“Such criminal acts will only increase our determination to confront terrorism and terror gangs that target army personnel who protect the security of the country and its borders,” he added.

According to the Jordanian military, the suicide bombing killed four border guards, one member of the country’s security services, and one member of the civil defense directorate. Fourteen others were wounded.

While there was no immediate claiming of responsibility for the attack, Jordan is part of the US-led coalition against the Islamic State terror group in Syria and Iraq. Jordan has been targeted by Islamic State in the past, when a Jordanian fighter pilot was captured after his plane went down and was later gruesomely burned alive by the terror group.
