Jordan Coordinates with Israel, Beefs Up Border with Syria

Jordan has begun to beef up its border with Syria, sending hundreds of thousands of troops, artillery and armored vehicles to the north, a senior Jordanian security source says.

The Hashemite Kingdom is coordinating its military moves with the State of Israel, according to a report published Monday in Lebanon’s Daily Star. 

Amman is also relaying messages between Jerusalem and the governments of Qatar and Saudi Arabi, in anticipation that President Bashar al-Assad’s regime may soon fall.

The Syrian village of As-Safira – home to one of at least five chemical weapons storage facilities –  has become the latest battleground between Assad loyalist troops and opposition forces, the pan-Arab Al-Arabiya news network reported Sunday. At least 30 people were killed Sunday in fierce fighting between the two forces in the village, located just south of Aleppo, the country’s northern commercial hub.
