ISIS, in new video, claims responsibility for bombing of Jordanian border post

ISIS released a video on Sunday night in which it took responsibility for the June 21 truck bombing in which six Jordanian border guards were killed and 14 were injured. The video shows the truck traveling at high speed toward the outpost in the desert, breaking through the gate and turning into a ball of fire.
As a result of the attack, the Jordanian army surrounded the Syrian refugee camp in the Ruqban area of northern Jordan where the suicide bomber and the truck came from. The camp housing 60,000 people has been cut off from the outside world.
