THE REGIONAL COOPERATION AGAINST ISIS

>–

cobraAmerican source said, on 07/23/2015, about 16 decommissioned  Cobre combat helicopters, modified by Israel,  were handed over from Israel to Jordan last year to fend off potential attacks from I.S.I.S.

The handover, initiated last year, was approved by Washington, which provided mechanical overhauls for the aircraft before they were incorporated free of charge in Jordan’s existing Cobra

Israel originally had two Cobra squadrons – each consisting of around 30 of the aircraft, which are designed to back ground troops with aerial surveillance as well as machine gun and rocket fire, and to be nimble enough to elude surface-to-air  The Jordanian air force has already 25 Cobras in service,

Israel has pledged to step in should Amman be threatened by Islamic State or other insurgents rampaging elsewhere in the Middle East. It also help Egypt with intelligence and other means against ISIS affiliated groups in Sinai Peninsula .
