US Welcomes UAE Decision To Base Fighter Jets In Jordan

The UAE had earlier suspended flights as part of the U.S.-led coalition conducting air strikes against ISIL.

The United States welcomes a decision by the United Arab Emirates to base its F-16 fighter jets in Jordan for operations against ISIL militants in Iraq and Syria, a U.S. State Department spokeswoman said on Monday.

The UAE had suspended flights as part of the U.S.-led coalition conducting air strikes against ISIL in view of concerns about search and rescue capabilities after a Jordanian pilot was downed and captured.

UAE fighters would now join raids from inside Jordan, a Jordanian army source said on Saturday.
