Syrian gunfire wounds Jordanian girl

AMMAN - A girl was wounded when shells and bullets fired from Syria hit Jordanian territory on Sunday, Amman said, in the latest incident to stoke tensions along the border.
Jordan's foreign ministry told Syria's envoy in Amman the incident was "unacceptable" - the strongest public response yet to a number exchanges of fire by both countries.Officials has previously reported Syrian troops firing at fleeing refugees and at Syrians trying to ferry supplies in support of the uprising against President Bashar Assad in their homeland.
The Syrian envoy was told that "Syrian shells reaching Jordanian territory was unacceptable, especially that such incidents have been repeated lately," said government spokesman Samih al-Maayta.
