"As soon as the aircraft landed at Benghazi Airport, Libyan people
gathered, commending the step and thanking Jordan's king, government and
people," Jordanian Col. Eqab Abu Wendi, commander of the Jordanian
Officials said the Hashemite kingdom would not participate in combat
aircraft missions over Libya. So far, Qatar has been the only Arab League
state to have flown combat missions as part of the Western-led effort
against Col. Moammar Gadhafi.
Jordanian Foreign Minister Nasser Judeh said the military's air
transports were accompanied by the kingdom's fighter-jets. He said the
fighter-jets landed in an unidentified military base on April 3 and were
assigned to protect the humanitarian mission in Libya.
"The kingdom has provided logistic support for enforcement of the no-fly
zone mandated by a United Nations resolution," Judeh said.
The United Arab Emirates has also sent fighter-jets to NATO's base in
Italy for the no-fly zone mission. So far, there have been no reports of
flights over Libya by the UAE's fleet of 12 F-16 and Mirage 2000-5
