    48 9K33 Osa and 50 9K35 Strela-10, financed by Saddam Hussein in 1982 as reward for Jordanian volunteer unit fighting against Iran.

    The rest are anti-aircraft guns and manpads

    Israel Gives Jordan Helicopters to Combat ISIL

    As international efforts to counter the spread of the self-proclaimed Islamic State intensify, Israel has given 16 surplus AH-1 Cobra attack helicopters to Jordan to prevent militants from spilling across the border.

    Israel had two squadrons of Cobra helicopters originally provided by the United States. Ideal for aerial surveillance, ground troop cover fire, and evading enemy missiles, both squadrons were disbanded by the Israeli Air Force by 2013 in favor of the Apache.

    But according to US officials, the Cobras will soon see new life in Jordan.

    "These choppers are for border security," the official, speaking on condition of anonymity, told Reuters. In the handover, the Royal Jordanian Air Force will receive "around 16, though some may have been used by the Jordanians for spare parts."

    Jordan already has 25 Cobras, and the new helicopters will be added to that fleet.

    The news comes amid US Defense Secretary Ashton Carter’s visit to the region, where he stressed Washington’s interest in combatting the threat posed by IS.

    "We’re trying to get a defeat that sticks," Carter told a group of US troops on Friday, according to NBC News. "And that can be delivered only by the people that live here. That’s the secret sauce."

    Initiated last year, the deal has the full approval of Washington, a surprising reversal from last summer when the US blocked an Israeli effort to sell its Cobra helicopters to Nigeria. At the time, then-US State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki said Washington’s objection was due to "ongoing concerns about the Nigerian military’s protection of civilians when conducting military operations."

    Earlier on Friday, US Secretary of State John Kerry told a think-tank in New York that he planned to reach out to Russia for help in forging international cooperation in the fight against the terrorist group.

    "We have to change the dynamic in Syria," Kerry told the Council on Foreign Relations, according to Reuters.

    "We want to bring the Saudis in, we want to bring the Turks in, and ultimately, probably, we will have to see what the Iranians are prepared to do," he added.

    This followed Thursday’s announcement that the Turkish government had decided to allow the US to use Incirlik Air Base to launch air strikes against IS militants. While Turkey had long opposed becoming involved in the conflict, border clashes in the past week forced Ankara to conduct its own military operations against the terrorist group earlier on Friday.

    The Russian government has also been working closely with Middle Eastern allies. In particular, Russia’s Ambassador to Syria Alexander Kinshchak has worked to solidify Moscow’s aid to the Syrian government.

    "If we do not want terrorists to win in Syria, with all the subsequent outcomes for countries in the region, especially since these consequences will spill out far beyond the region, it means that it is necessary to help the Syrian government in this war," Kinshchak told RIA Novosti.

    Jordan policeman kills two Americans and South African at training centre

    Source: BBC

    A Jordanian policeman has shot dead two American instructors and a South African at a police training centre outside Amman, officials say.

    Government spokesman Mohammad Momani said the assailant wounded two other Americans and four Jordanians, before being killed by his fellow officers.

    Jordanian security sources earlier said that the gunman had killed himself.

    The US-funded Jordan International Police Training Centre (JIPTC) hosts mainly Palestinian and Iraqi officers.

    Jordan Pride of lions

    Jordan Pride of lions [SOFEX16D3]
    12 May 2016 | Here: http://www.janes.com/article/60271/pride-of-lions-sofex16d3

    The King Abdullah II Design and Development Bureau (KADDB) (outside Hall 5) has unveiled the latest version of its heavy armoured personnel carrier (APC).

    Given the name Al-Dawsar, meaning a lion, the new vehicle is based on the hull of a surplus Tariq main battle tank, which has now been phased out of service with the Jordanian Army.

    This latest version retains the standard Tariq hull, but with a raised superstructure at the front and the power pack at the rear. The latter consists of the new L-3 Combat Propulsion Systems AVDS 1790 V12 diesel developing 750hp, coupled to an Allison CD 850-6A automatic transmission at the rear.

    The hydropneumatic suspension of the Tariq is retained and this provides a much better cross-country ride than the original Centurion suspension.

    The raised crew and troop compartment is at the front of the hull and, in addition to the driver and commander/gunner, can carry seven dismounts, which are seated on individual seats facing inwards.

    As well as the four roof hatches, the dismounts can rapidly enter and leave via a new power-operated opening in the front left side of the hull. The top part opens upwards and the lower part opens downwards to form a ramp.

    The driver’s position is at the front right and he has the same yoke-type steering controls as fitted to the upgraded Tariq, rather than the original tillers of the Centurion.

    The first example of Al-Dawsar being shown here is fitted with a pintle-mounted .50 M2 HB machine gun at the commander’s station, but a wide range of other weapons could be installed.

    The baseline all-welded steel hull has been retained, but it is fitted with an appliqué armour package over the frontal arc to give a higher level of ballistic protection.
