Israel will not take part in an upcoming military exercise called “Eager Lion 2013,” the Jordanian government said on Sunday, according to a report in The Jordan Times on Monday.

The drill is to take place in the next few weeks and 15,000 troops from 18 Arab and other countries will participate, “but Israel is not one of them,” government spokesman Muhammad Momani said.

The drill will last two weeks and takes place as the Syrian civil war rages to Jordan’s north.

The country has absorbed hundreds of thousands of refugees from the conflict.
