Jordan: 4 Syrian rockets wound Jordanian girl

AMMAN, Jordan (AP) — Jordan's information minister says four Syrian rockets have fallen on a northern Jordanian border town, slightly wounding a 4-year-old girl.

Sameeh Maaytah says the Jordanian girl was treated for shrapnel wounds and then released from the hospital.

Then minister says the four rockets landed Sunday on the outskirts of the Jordanian city of Turra, a village near Mafraq on the Syrian border.

Another government official said the rockets were apparently fired at Syrian villages near the restive southern border city of Daraa but missed their target.

No other details were immediately available.
