Jordan intercepted some flying objects that entered its airspace overnight night to ensure the safety of its citizens, a cabinet statement says.

Iran launched explosive drones and fired missiles at Israel.

Jordan, which lies between Iran and Israel, had readied air defenses to intercept any drones or missiles that violated its territory, two regional security sources say.

“Some shrapnel fell in multiple places during that time without causing any significant damage or any injuries to citizens,” the Jordan cabinet statement adds.
