AFP , Monday 3 Jun 2013

The United States will send a Patriot missile battery and F-16 fighters to Jordan for a drill and may keep them there to counter the threat posed by Syria's civil war, US officials said Monday.

"In order to enhance the defensive posture and capacity of Jordan, some of these assets may remain beyond the exercise at the request of the Government of Jordan," Lieutenant Colonel T.G. Taylor said in a statement.
