Background: A number of Jordanian civilians, injured on Friday (10 April) when two Israeli fighters raided the town of Northern Shuneh, seven miles (11 kms) southeast of the Sea of Galilee, were taken to hospital in Irbid after the raid. According to a Jordanian military spokesman, six civilians were killed and ten others injured in the raid.
According to the spokesman, the raid was carried out by two Israeli Mystery fighters which also machinegunned three civilian cars.
Young children were among the wounded at Princess Basma Hospital in Irbid. It was reported that one of the children hurt in the attack died moments after being filmed.
An Israeli announcement of the raid, indicated it had been in conjunction with a series of air strikes against what were described as Arab commando targets in Jordan. The hour-long intermittent strike against Jordan, of which the Northern Shuneh attack was a part, followed the shelling of a number of Israeli agricultural villages and the town of Beit Shean in the North Jordan valley during the previous 24 hours.
