AMMAN — Israeli troops will conduct experimental blasts on Thursday at what is known as the “zero” area near the Jordanian-Israeli border north of Aqaba city, according to the Jordan Armed Forces (JAF).

The operation, which will begin at 11:00am and end at 3:00pm, aims to “measure the effect of blasts” on the nearby areas, according to the JAF source, who noted that Jordan has requested that the Israelis ensure that their operations do not threaten public safety.
