Military Expert Warns of Jordan’s Likely Participation in War on Syria

A prominent Jordanian military expert said Amman is preparing to enter the war against Syria in support for the terrorist groups.

FNA -- "The Southern parts of Syria are sensitive given their adjacency to Jodan's Northern borders which is a vital region and it is much likely to start a role in the war in Syria at a time when the equations are disturbed" given the presence of the Syrian army and its allies in Southern Syria, Sami al-Majali, a retired Jordanian General, telling FNA.

Noting that all plots and warmongerings by the US and its allies in the region are aimed at disintegration of countries near Israel, he said that it is the Zionist lobby which makes decision for the western states on Syria.

"Fighting against terrorism is the westerners' trick to prolong the war in the region and destroy it," Majali said.

His remarks came after recent reports said that the US military is concentrating troops and military equipment at the Syrian-Jordanian border.

Local sources said that about 20 US Army armored vehicles (including battle tanks and artillery pieces) carried on trucks were spotted in Al-Mafraq. US troops were accompanied with the Jordanian Army's 3rd Division.

The US Special Operation Forces, the UK Special Operation Forces and units from some other countries -have been conducting operations across the Syrian-Jordanian border for a long time. They even had a secret military facility inside Syria where members the so-called New Syrian Army militant group were deployed. However, it was the first time when a notable number of US armored vehicles was reported there.
