Jordan’s foreign ministry summons Iranian ambassador for questioning decision to shoot down drones

The Jordanian Ministry of Foreign Affairs says it has summoned Iran’s ambassador to warn Tehran that it must stop questioning Jordan’s position, after it assisted Israel in shooting down the hundreds of attack drones and missiles last night.

“Everything that poses a threat to Jordan and to the security of Jordanians, we confront with all our capabilities and abilities,” the ministry says on X, formerly Twitter.

At the same time, Jordan’s King Abdullah told US President Joe Biden in a phone call that any further escalation from Israel in response to Iran’s attacks would widen the conflict in the region, Jordanian state media reports.
