of the "Swords of Karama" exercise area opposite the Israeli border.
UPDATE 30 November 2018: As KenB noted in the comments section, the Royal Jordanian Army, with King Abdullah present, engaged in a large military exercise on its border with Israel north of the Dead Sea. The full Report was found on the MEMRI website.
In the now three days since the report was published it has been studied in greater detail. Of note is the fact that the Netanyahu announcement concerning the annexation to Israel of the whole of the Jordan Valley undoubtedly resulted in the Jordanians launching this exercise billed as being defensive in nature, but it was certainly much more than that against the "occupier of Palestine" and the "occupying entity."
To the contrary, this was an unambiguous message to Israel of Jordanian belligerence for the obvious fact that an exercise of this scale is totally unnecessary to cause the destruction of the Allenby Bridge connecting Israel and Jordan. The Jordanians are not folling anyone.
Also, the town of al-Karameh, site of the 1968 battle for which the exercise was named, lies north and 1 mile east of the Israeli border. This town was the northern edge of the simulated battlefield. The southern edge of the battlefield was the historical pilgrimage site where John the Baptist conducted the baptismal of our Lord Jesus Christ. The Allenby Bridge lies between these two points.
18 November 2019: This is will be a sort of continuation of the 'Missing Pieces' topic of Global SITREP D3-19, with an emphasis on Jordan. Eschatology Today long ago established a direct link between the fulfillment of Psalm 83 and Isaiah 11:14 (NKJV) as quoted below.
