Syria Expels Jordanian Diplomat in Tit-for-Tat Move

Syria has responded to Jordan’s expelling of its ambassador to Amman by expelling a Jordanian diplomat from Damascus, AFP reported on Monday, citing Syria’s state-run television.

Al-Ikhbariya television reported on Monday evening that Syria decided to expel Jordan's charge d'affaires, in a tit-for-tat move hours after Amman gave the Syrian ambassador 24 hours to leave the kingdom.
