AMMAN — His Majesty King Abdullah, the Supreme Commander of the Jordan Armed Forces-Arab Army, accompanied by HRH Crown Prince Hussein, visited Al Ghamr in Wadi Araba on Saturday.

King Abdullah, who was also accompanied by HRH Prince Ghazi, His Majesty’s chief adviser for religious and cultural affairs and personal envoy, was received by Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Maj. Gen. Yousef Huneiti and a number of senior army officers, according to a Royal Court statement.

During the visit, His Majesty was briefed on the historical, geographic and strategic importance of the area.
