The Royal Jordanian Air force strike Wednesday, April 16, against a combat vehicle convoy from Syria destroyed an Al Qaeda raider force on its way to attack US military targets in the kingdom, DEBKAfiles military sources reveal. Jordans first assault on a target outside the country took place on the Syrian side of the border opposite the eastern town of Ruwaished. This episode brought to the fore how dramatically the threat al Qaeda-Iraq poses to Jordan, the US forces based their and Israel has escalated. Amman has not disclosed where the air strike took place, who rode in the destroyed armored vehicles and where they came from.
According to DEBKAfiles counterterrorism sources, they were driven by Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIS) fighters, coming from the western Iraqi province of Anbar. To avoid running into Jordanian military formations around Ruwaished, the group moved through Syria in the Abu Kemal region and, after refueling and collecting extra fighters and arms, turned south and aimed for the Jordanian border, where their expedition was abruptly brought to a close.

I fear for Israel when King Abdulah is gone. There are some pretty radical elements in Jordan but they’re mostly kept under control.
Debka, the same guys who said there were 100,000 Chinese troops in Afghanistan back in 2001.
Probably the Elete Republican Guard Al Qadea/S
