Tinderbox: Four Syrian shells land inside Jordan

From Ammon News:
State Minister for Media Affairs and Communications and Government Spokesperson Samih Maaytah said that four shells landed on Jordanian territory due to clashes between the Syrian government forces and the opposition forces on the Syrian side of the borders, injuring a Jordanian girl who suffered shrapnel wounds, Petra news Agency reported.

Maaytah added that four other citizens were sent to hospital suffering from panic.

He also expressed the government's condemnation of the incident, noting the government summoned the Syrian ambassador in Amman and handed him a letter of protest.
This has happened in Lebanon as well.

But if it happened on the Turkish border, I'm not sure that the reaction would be so muted.
