Jordan shoots down drone near Syria border
An explosion was heard after a Jordanian missile shot down a drone in the governorate of al-Mafraq, Al Arabiya’s correspondent reported early Friday.
The Ammon news agency said the Jordanian Armed Forces intercepted the drone hovering over Mafraq, north-east the capital Amman.
Sources quoted by Al Arabiya News Channel said the plane was coming from the kingdom’s northern border.
Residents in the area felt a slight ground shake when the blast sound was heard.
