Jordan rejects Israel claim over border shooting

"A military source in the General Command of the Jordanian armed forces denied ... that shots had been fired from the Jordanian side on the Western border, affirming that there is no truth to this information," the Petra news agency said.

Earlier the Israeli army said Israeli troops had come under fire from Jordan, but no one was hurt in the incident that came 18 days into Israel's Gaza offensive killing over 900 Palestinians.
