Jordan Sends Troops to Defend Iraqi Border from ISIS

The Jordanian military has sent troops to its border with Iraq after the Al Qaeda-linked Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (also known as the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Shams, or ISIS) captured the Turaibil border crossing between Iraq and Jordan.

Dozens of Jordanian military units have been sent to the area to cover the border and prevent the terrorist organization from advancing any further. Jordan is an ally of the United States and has a peace treaty with Israel.

The jihadists also seized the Walid and Qaim border crossings with Syria over the weekend, as well as four towns, according to a report posted Monday by the Irish Times.

The group now controls a 300-kilometer swathe of territory along the Euphrates River, from Mosul in the north, to Tikrit, hometown of former dictator Sadaam Hussein, in addition to its newly-won length of the Iraqi border.

  1. Those Lunatics have very high expectations ;as they aim to take over a lot more than Syria and Iraq -the part that wories me is the attraction of Westeners that join their ranks and return back here to finish the job. thank you.

  2. Edward Lobel says:

    If the treaty between Israel and Jordan includes mutual military defense then if Jordan is attacked Israel will probably send military aid and there is no way that Israelis soldiers would stop fighting. Israel's superior military would wipe out isis and that will end the problem!
