Palestinian gunmen expelled a group Jordanian military personnel from Jenin. The Al-Aksa Brigade said the five officers, dressed as civilians, came to the city last Friday as part of Amman’s possible efforts to take over security control of the West Bank in coordination with Israel. But Jordan, which has offered to train Palestinian forces to take over areas of the West Bank from which Israel withdraws, denied the charge. It said the five Jordanians, including an army brigadier general, were military reporters on a routine inspection of West Bank civil facilities funded by Jordan.
