Fighting involving armored vehicles broke out on Friday between Jordanian and Syrian troops at a border region that has been used as a passage for refugees fleeing Syria, a Syrian opposition activist who witnessed the incident told Reuters.
The fighting occurred in the Tel Shihab-Turra area after a number of Syrian refugees attempted to cross into Jordan, the activist said.
A Jordanian source later confirmed that fighting broke out between Jordanian and Syrian forces in the Tel Shehab-Turra border region, but said there appeared to have been no Jordanian deaths.
The Syrian side fired across the border and fighting ensued. Initial reports indicate that there has been no one killed from the Jordanian side, said the source, who spoke to Reuters on condition of anonymity.
Meanwhile on Friday, Syria accused Israel, the United States, Saudi Arabia and Qatar of running military operation centers in Turkey to support the rebels by overseeing battles in Syria's 17-month conflict.
In a letter to the UN Security Council, Syrian UN Ambassador Bashar Ja'afari also again blamed Qatar, Turkey and Saudi Arabia of "harboring, funding and arming the armed terrorist groups."

“When your enemies are killing each other, get out of the way”.
Keep shooting, muzzies!
Turkey on one side, Jordan on the other and Assad and Mother Russia sidled up in Syria.
Some seriously bad potential going on these days.
New saying, when a terrorist-supporting rabid-dog of a state is fighting for its life and gets into a border shoot-out, while accusing others of supporting terrorists, whip up a batch of popcorn.
this happen before when the worthless pali scum (but i repeat myself) tried to take over jordan and huessein threw them out. syrians got trounced again. hell they vcan’t even win a war against themselves.
Extra butter & salt for me! Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm...
If I were president, I would order my crack teams of under cover commandos to blow up mosques in those areas and make it look like the other muslims did it. First one side, then the other side, until full blown conflicts would develop, and they get distracted from the jews and just blow each other up.
