US Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel approved the deployment of a Patriot missile battery and F-16 fighter jet aircraft to Jordan as part of a planned military exercise, CNN reported.

According to the report, the weapons system may remain in the country after the exercise to help bolster Jordan's security against violence from the Syrian civil war.

The multinational training exercise called Eager Lion is taking place this month.
