Jordan Drones Strikes ISIS (Daesh) Weaponry Depot, Training Base in Southern Syria

6th February 2017, Amman: Latest Military reports from Jordan indicate that their military drones conducted aerial sorties and struck ISIS also known as Daesh weaponry depot and the militant’s training base in southern Syria.

The precision drone strikes completely destroyed the arms depot, a factory used to make car bombs and a training base (barracks) used by the militant group.

According to report by the state run news agency Petra, the military drones and precision-guided munitions killed over two dozen and wounded scores of Daesh militants. The drone strikes also targeted a Daesh-held former Syrian army post in the sourhern region.

Jordan has been in the frontline on the war against the extremist groups where it has carried out several strikes before as part of a US-led coalition against Daesh in Iraq and Syria.

The latest bombardments came after King Abdullah II held high-level meetings in Washington last week about a possible US shift in Syria policy.

US President Donald Trump has raised the possibility of safe having zones in Syria, an idea has received criticism warning that the move could escalate US military engagement.
