Le Figaro: Jordan Opens Air to Israel to Spy on Syria


Jordan has decided to open its air space to the Zionist entity in order to monitor the situation in Syria and even attack the country’s claimed chemical weapons facilities, a French newspaper stated.

The report published Monday by the French daily Le Figaro said two air corridors — one in the south of Jordan from the Negev region in southern occupied territories and another north of Amman — have been made available to the Zionist air force.

Jordan’s King Abdullah decided to permit the Zionist entity to use his country’s airspace after meeting with U.S. President Barack Obama in Jordan in March, the newspaper added.

“This is a strong and exceptional gesture,” Western military source in the Middle East told Le Figaro.

To avoid detection, “Israeli drones will fly at night,” the source added.

“They will carry out reconnaissance missions, but they will be also armed and therefore can hit a target anywhere in Syria.”

The report believed that Abdullah’s decision threatens the fragile situation Jordan is facing due to thousands of Syrian refugees in Jordan.

“Their presence in Jordan has affected the country’s economy,” it said.

Neither Jordan nor the Zionist entity officially commented on the Le Figaro report so far.
