Jordan Offers Military Assistance to Iraq

By Patrick Schmidt.

Following a meeting with Jordanian General Mohammed al-Zaben, Iraq’s Minister of Defense Khaled al-Obaidi announced that Jordan had offered all of its military power to assist in the fight against the Islamic State (IS, ISIS, ISIL). The Jordanian general relayed the message from King Abdullah.

Jordan has taken an increasingly active role in the international coalition following the murder of a Jordanian pilot last week by the Islamic State.
