April 2014 Jordanian–Syrian border airstrike refers to bombing by the Jordanian Air Force of a convoy on the Syrian-Jordanian border, taking place on 16 April 2014.[1] Reportedly, the airstrike took place when the convoy attempted to penetrate the Jordanian border from Syria.[1]

Though Syrian involvement was proposed, a Syrian military official said the vehicles did not belong to the Syrian army.[1] A Jordanian security source said the targets appeared to have been Syrian rebels with machine guns mounted on civilian vehicles who were seeking refuge from fighting with government forces in southern Syria.[2]
