Assad warns ‘fire’ in Syria could reach Jordan

Syrian President Bashar al-Assad on Wednesday threatened the crisis in Syria could spill over into Jordan, in an hour-long interview with official al-Ikhbariya channel.

“I cannot believe that hundreds (of rebels) are entering Syria with their weapons while Jordan is capable of arresting any single person with a light arm for going to resist in Palestine,” Assad said.

“We would wish that our Jordanian neighbors realize that… the fire will not stop at our borders; all the world knows Jordan is just as exposed (to the crisis) as Syria.”

Assad’s warning came amid reports the United States plans to deploy 200 troops in the Jordan.
