Al Qaeda drove the Syrian armored vehicles destroyed by Jordan

In its first air strike since the outbreak of the Syrian war, the Jordanian Air Force destroyed a number of Syrian armored vehicles trying to cross into the kingdom from Syria, Jordanian state TV interrupted its broadcasts to report Wednesday. DEBKAfile’s military sources reveal that the vehicles belonging to the Syrian army had fallen into the hands of Al Qaeda which used them to smuggle weapons to and from Syria. This fits in with the jihadist movement’s plans to penetrate Jordan from Syria and Iraq for attacks not only on the Hashemite Kingdom but also for access to Israel.
