  • Description

    Twenty thousand people saw a show of military strength in the Jordanian desert on Sunday (25 May) ... but it was only celebrations for the country's Independence and Army Day.

    As King Hussein, military chiefs and other dignitaries looked out across the wide, desert sands near Al-Azraq, soldiers performed a wide range of manoeuvres, including a spectacular reconstruction of a battle between the Jordanian Arab Army and Israeli Armed forces.

    The celebratory exercises involved the use of all Arab army weapons, including the new Rocket Two and a new tank. All ammunition used was live.
