In a statement on Monday, Foreign Ministry spokesman Bahram Qassemi offered condolences to the Jordanian government, people and families of victims of the recent attacks on police forces, Tasnim News Agency reported.
On Saturday, three Jordanian police officers were killed and several others injured when security forces stormed a building outside the capital Amman in search of suspects behind an explosion that had killed a policeman a day earlier.
Government spokeswoman Jumana Ghuneimat said suspects had rigged the building with explosives and detonated them when police raided it.
Police had been chasing suspects in a bombing attack Friday in which a police officer was killed. The government has called the bombing a “terrorist attack.”
Jordan’s Interior Ministry announced that the bomb that went off late Friday was planted in an area where a police vehicle usually stops in the town of Fuheis.
