AMMAN, Jordan - Two Jordanians have been indicted on charges of planning to murder an Israeli factory owner in the city of Irbid.

Jordan's military prosecutor issued the indictment on Wednesday.

The two men, 37-year-old Loay Shehadah and 36-year-old Mohammed Odatallah, are also charged with planning to murder other Jews living in Jordan and with illegal possession of two automatic weapons.

According to the charge sheet, in January the two men, who were en route to murder the factory owner, were diverted by a security patrol.

Jordanian intelligence officials arrested the men.

In June 2008, a Jordanian court convicted three Hamas operatives of plotting terror attacks on Israeli businessmen.

The three men, who pleaded innocent to the charges, were sentenced to between five and 15 years in prison.

The man who received the longest sentence confessed to receiving orders from an unnamed senior Hamas official in Damascus.
