Jordan is allowing Israeli drones to fly over its airspace to enter Syria for intelligence and other possible missions, according to a report in the French newspaper Le Figaro on Sunday. King Abdullah has opened two air corridors for use by the Israeli Air Force, according to the report. In order to avoid detection, Israel is flying drone flights at night over Jordan and Syria. The planes are gathering intelligence and are also armed to hit targets in Syria if needed.

The Jordanian decision to allow Israeli overflights seemed to have been taken during US President Obama's visit to to Israel and Jordan last month, the report states.
