Four cars carrying gunmen attacked a police patrol south of Karak, Jordan on Sunday.

Security sources said the attackers were being pursued in an area surrounding an ancient castle in the mountainous city where police sealed off the main roads and dispatched elite special forces to hunt the attackers.

Sources close to Jourdanian officals have said that around 1:30 pm, during the police patrol within the Qatraneh center, they were told of the presence of a gas cylinder explosive inside the building.

Upon the arrival of the security forces, the armed militants began to fire shots using rifles.
