Jordan let Israeli jets use its airspace during Iran attack — report

An Israeli air force officer says Jordan allowed Israeli fighter jets into its airspace to shoot down missiles and drones launched by Iran early Sunday, NBC News reports.

“In order to address something that comes from the east, we need to fly somewhere that is east of Israel,” the official says. “This was done with coordination.”

The report says Jordanian and Israeli fighters were coordinated by the US military, in what is thought to be the first time Israel and Jordan fought side by side.
