Jordan has allowed the Israeli regime to fly its drones over the Jordanian airspace in order to monitor the situation in Syria, a report says.
A high-ranking Jordanian official, close to King Abdullah II, told the London-based newspaper Jewish Chronicle that Amman and Tel Aviv were â€œworking as one over Syria.â€
The official, whose name was not mentioned in the report, stated that Jordan would â€œof courseâ€¦ allow Israel to use Jordanian air space for another attack on Syriaâ€ if the need arose.
On May 5, Syria said the Israeli regime had carried out an airstrike targeting a research center in a suburb of Damascus, following heavy losses inflicted upon al-Qaeda-affiliated groups by the Syrian army.
According to Syrian media reports, the strike hit the Jamraya Research Center which had been targeted in another Israeli airstrike in January.
â€œSyria is a crisis whatever happens. Assad is no longer a force for stabilityâ€¦ The Israelis donâ€™t mess about and thatâ€™s what we need. We are working as one over Syria,â€ the Jordanian official said, referring to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.
Syria has been gripped by unrest for over two years, and many people, including large numbers of Syrian soldiers and security personnel, have been killed in the foreign-sponsored militancy.
The Syrian army has conducted successful operations against the militant groups over the past several days.
On May 25, Hezbollah Secretary-General Seyyed Hassan Nasrallah defended the Lebanese resistance movementâ€™s decision to fight the militants in Syriaâ€™s town of Qusayr near the Lebanese border.
President Assad said on May 18 that militants from 29 different countries were fighting against the government in different parts of the country.
