Jordan has signed off on a plan for Israel to fly military drones of its airspace to Syria in order to keep abreast of the civil war and whether government forces use chemical weapons.

The drones are also equipped with the ability to target and destroy any chemical weapon caches that are discovered, The Times of Israel reported.

They “can hit a target anywhere in Syria,” one source said, in The Times of Israel.

The permission was granted to Israel by King Abdullah II. Both Israel and Jordan have expressed concern about the spill-over of violence from Syria.

Israel’s drones are to-of-the-line in terms of technology and can evade detection by Syria’s defense system, The Times of Israel reported.
