约旦军方:叙利亚边境发生汽车炸弹爆炸,6名军人丧生 Jordanian Army Says Car Bomb Near Syrian Border Killed 6 Soldiers

一名约旦军方官员星期二说,一枚汽车炸弹在约旦与叙利亚边界爆炸,造成6名军人死亡,14人受伤。爆炸发生在鲁克班地区,那里居住着数万名逃离暴力,希望进入约旦寻求庇护的叙利亚难民。

目前还没有人宣称对袭击事件负责。约旦军方说,爆炸摧毁了几辆涉嫌袭击的汽车,但没有透露更多细节。

约旦境内在联合国登记注册的难民已超过65万,而事实上的难民人数远远不止于此。约旦人口为800万,跟其他与叙利亚接壤的国家一样,为这些难民提供食宿给约旦带来了很大压力。联合国呼吁为接纳难民的国家提供资金援助,但到位资金远未达到预设目标。

A Jordanian army official said Tuesday a car bomb that exploded along Jordan's border with Syria killed six soldiers and wounded 14 others. The blast happened in the Rukban area where tens of thousands of people fleeing the violence in Syria have sought refuge as they try to get into Jordan.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the attack. Jordan's army said it destroyed several other vehicles that were involved, but did not provide more details.

The United Nations has already registered more than 650,000 refugees in Jordan. The nation of 8 million people is hosting many more than that and like other countries bordering Syria has struggled to cope with the added strain of providing for so many extra people. U.N. appeals for aid money have fallen far short of their goals.
