Mirage Fighters Arrive in Jordan to Fight ISIS

Three French Mirage warplanes have been deployed in Jordan to assist in the fight against the Islamic State group, a military spokesman said on Saturday. France, which is participating in U.S.-led coalition air strikes in Iraq, said this month it would deploy six jet fighters in Jordan. Army spokesman Colonel Mamduh al-Amiri said three of the aircraft arrived late Friday as part of the “operational strategy to confront threats in the region,” according to state-run Petra news agency.
