Ammon News - AMMONNEWS - The State Security Court (SSC) on Wednesday postponed the sentencing of 5 people suspected to be behind a deadly terrorist attack on an army outpost on the northeastern border in 2016.

The SSC said Najm Umor, Ahmed Bdour, Fadi Umor, Khalif Ghiath and Hilal al-Ali, all Syrian nationals, are facing charges of committing terrorist acts by using explosives that led to the death of human beings, importing narcotics and illegally entering the country.

During today's public hearing, the defendants denied the charges brought against them, said the court, adding it will issue its ruling on March 19th.

In June 2016, seven Jordanian border guards were killed by a suicide bomber, who careered a car at the border from Syria and rammed it into a military post.
