King orders relief assistance to Iraq’s Anbar

by Jordan Times | Nov 10, 2014

AMMAN — Upon the directives of His Majesty King Abdullah, the Supreme Commander of the Jordan Armed Forces, the army on Monday dispatched a military aircraft laden with humanitarian assistance, including various supplies and blankets, to Iraq.

The consignment, which is part of the Kingdom’s efforts exerted to foster joint cooperation and in line with the brotherly relations between the two countries, was aimed to mitigate the suffering of the Iraqi people due to the circumstances they are going through, a Royal Court statement said.

The Royal Jordanian Air Force aircraft landed at Ein Al Assad Airport in Al Anbar province, west of Baghdad.

Parts of Anbar have been under the control of the Islamic State (IS) terror group, which controls large swathes of Iraq and Syria.

  1. What is required is the total defeat of ISIS in Iraq not palliatives. A plane load of humanitarian aid does not even scratch the surface. The Iraqis should be assisted to reclaim their country and start the process of reconstruction. That will happen when ISIS ceases to terrorize the people. This calls for committing full military resources by all those who see the terrorists as a threat.
