Jordanian Soldier Sentenced To Life In Prison

Jordanian Military Court

Maarik Al-Tawaiha, a 39-year-old Jordanian soldier has been sentenced to life in prison over the killing of three American military trainers.

The military court found the soldier guilty of shooting the trainers as they waited to enter the King Faisal base at Al-Jafr in southern Jordan on November 4.

A judicial official said the court sentenced him to “hard labour for life”, a term that usually lasts 20 years but could stretch to a full lifetime.

He was further demoted and thrown out of military service.
