BEIRUT Jordan’s air drive brought down a drone that approached the country’s air place in the vicinity of its northern border with Syria on Wednesday evening, the Jordanian military services said in a statement.
F-16 fighter jets brought down the drone following it repeatedly came near to the border, and the air drive “gathered the drone’s ruins” for inspection, the statement said.
The statement did not determine the drone.
On Tuesday, Syrian government warplanes struck rebel outposts in the vicinity of the Jordanian border, rebels in southern Syria said, bringing the war nearer to Syria’s U.S.-allied neighbor.
The air strikes ended up the first in the vicinity of that portion of the border, a Jordanian formal said. They came hours following Syria’s international minister warned Jordan against sending troops into his nation.
