Jordanian MPs Demand: Let's Stay Out of Fight with IS


A group of Jordanian deputies demanded on Wednesday that the kingdom stay out of any war against Islamic State jihadists who have captured swathes of territory in neighboring Iraq and Syria, AFP reports.

21 MPs, who represent various factions in the 150-seat parliament, sent a memorandum to speaker Atef al-Tarawneh demanding "the government not involve Jordan (in the fight) against the Islamic State", the report said.
