Jordan has received 16 Cobra helicopter gunships from Israel for border security

“Israel gave Jordan 16 Cobra combat helicopters to defend its borders against ISIS threats, an unnamed U.S. official told Reuters exclusively.”

“The helicopters, originally supplied by the United States, were mechanically overhauled before they were given to Jordan, the official told Reuters, and the U.S. approved the exchange.”

“The Cobra helicopters were part of two squadrons that Israel disbanded, one in the mid-2000s and the other in 2013, Reuters reported, preferring to use Apache helicopters instead.”
