Each day the situation is getting worse. So far we can account for 100 arrests (20 in my town alone)and two car bombs and a speedboat incident. Jordan times reported this:
AMMAN — The army on Saturday night destroyed a jeep that tried to illegally enter the Kingdom from Iraq, a Jordan Armed Forces (JAF) source said Sunday.
Warning shots were fired at the speeding vehicle, but were ignored and the driver continued to move towards the border, the source told the Jordan News Agency, Petra.
In line with the rules of engagement, the army destroyed the vehicle, according to the JAF source.
In a separate incident, the source said Royal Naval Force (RNF) personnel also foiled an attempt by a speedboat to illegally infiltrate Jordanian waters from a neighbouring state.
The infiltrators, whose nationality was not disclosed, ignored the warning shots fired by the RNF and continued to approach, forcing security personnel to shoot at the vessel and halt its advance.
The two Arab nationals found on the boat are currently being interrogated, according to the JAF source.
Most of what is going on is not reported though. Last night 100 meters from my home ISIS placed grafitti on the prison (now closed) in multiple places in large letters about the king. This in itself would get anyone jail time or worse. To say one word against the king is forbidden. What alarms me is that it is so close to my home.
The roads are jammed with police presence everywhere. Tonight went to stock up at Safeway and half of Jordan was there. It is alarming and eirie. Guess everyone had the same ideal. Better to stock up now. We can only hope we will be ok but I happen to be in the midst of the war I fear.
