Syria accuses Jordan

[18-05-2015 11:46 PM]

Ammon News - AMMONNEWS - Syria has accused Jordan of training "terrorists" on its soil and urged the U.N. Security council to force an end to Amman's backing of rebel groups.

The accusation came in a letter sent Monday by the foreign ministry to U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-moon and the president of the U.N. Security Council, the official news agency SANA said.

The letter criticized the "public and systematic support provided by the kingdom of Jordan to terrorist groups, increasing the suffering of Syria's citizens because of crimes committed by these groups".

The letter alleges Jordan "provides logistical support to armed terrorist groups, including (Al-Qaeda affiliate) the Nusra Front".

It also accuses Jordan of having "set up terrorist training camps on its soil as well as operations centers to help these groups and facilitate the infiltration of thousands of terrorists a day (into Syria)."

Jordan is a leading supporter of the Syrian opposition, and this month the United States began training opposition fighters on Jordanian soil to fight ISIS.

Syria's government refers to all those seeking Assad's ouster as terrorists.

The letter urged the Security Council to take measures "to stop the actions of Jordan that threaten security and stability in the region and the entire world".

Last month, rebel groups including Islamists seized the key Nasib border crossing between Syria and Jordan, the last post between the countries that remained under government control.
