    MOSCOW (Sputnik) - Several members of the Jordanian security forces have been attacked in the Al-Malih area, the Jordanian Interior Ministry said in a statement released by the state-run news agency Petra.

    "A few hours ago ... an armed attack was carried out on a detachment of general security personnel operating in the Al-Malih area next to the highway to Queen Alia International Airport. Several security personnel were injured", the statement read.

    The ministry pointed out that any violation of the law or an attack on public security personnel will be met with a decisive response.

    Earlier, police said that all measures would be taken to prevent mass gatherings and actions that violate the law.

    On Saturday, protests hit the outskirts of the capital Amman that resulted in "armed attacks on security forces", according to local media. The reported attacks come as a lawmaker, Osama al-Ajarma, had been banned from parliament after insulting the legislative body, which ignited calls for protests by members of his tribe.
