Jordan

The Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan has been in the news recently due to its hosting of Syrian refugees, and more controversially, for its alleged involvement in the training of anti-Assad Syrian rebels on its territory. The reports that Jordan is indirectly and actively assisting with the rebel effort in Syria sparked a warning by Syrian state media this week, which indicated that Jordan was “playing with fire” by backing the opposition (April 5, 2013 The Guardian).
