“Terror attack on intelligence office in Baqaa kills five security personnel,” Jordan Times, June 6, 2016 (thanks to Nichole):

AMMAN – Five General Intelligence Department (GID) personnel were killed early Monday in an attack on the department’s office in the Palestinian refugee camp of Baqaa, a government official announced.

Minister of State for Media Affairs and Government’s Spokesperson Mohammad Momani said in a statement carried by the Jordan News Agency, Petra, that the cowardly attack on the security office in the first day of Ramadan shows the criminal behaviour of the terrorists, adding the attack took place before 7:00am.

The attack left five personnel dead, including three officers who guarded the office.

Security agencies are investigating the accident to chase and bring the assailants to justice, and will announce further details later, Momani said.

The five security personnel were identified as Sergeant Loay Al Zyoud, Corporal Hani Al Qaaideh, Corporal Omar Al Hiyari, Private Ahmad Al Harahsheh and Soldier Mahmoud Al Awamleh.
