Jordan relocates troops from Israeli border to the one with Syria and Iraq

(Amman) Due to the increasing presence of ISIS on its eastern flanks, the Jordanian government has started relocating troops from its border with Israel and used them to beef up its borders with Syria and Iraq.

The irony here is that an Islamic state feels it is safer on its borders with Israel than it does on its borders with its Islamic neighbours. On that note, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu stated a year ago that Israel is prepared to defend Jordan if it is attacked.
