War on ISIS: Jordan Soldier Sentenced To Life For Murder of Three U.S. Special Forces | Newsweek

A military court in Jordan on Monday gave one of its soldiers a life sentence for shooting and killing three American special forces at a base near the capital Amman in November.

The court in the Jordanian capital found that 39-year-old Maarik Al-Tawaiha was guilty of shooting dead the military trainers as they waited at a checkpoint in vehicles at the King Faisal base in southern Jordan.

It demoted him, removed him from military service and handed him a sentence of “hard labor for life.”
