French newspaper Le Figaro reported Monday that Jordan
has decided to allow Israel
to use its airspace in order to monitor the situation in Syria
and even attack the country's chemical facilities, if the need arose.
The French newspaper's website noted two routes to be opened to Israel: a southern route from the Negev and a route via Amman. Opening Jordanian airspace would mean Israel can avoid flying over southern Lebanon.
Last January, Syria claimed that the IDF
a military research center in the Damascus province.

Two people were reportedly killed and five were wounded in the alleged attack on the site in Jamraya, which Syria described as one of a number of "scientific research centers aimed at raising the level of resistance and self-defense."
The building was destroyed, the military command said in a statement carried by state media.
It said the planes crossed into Syria below the radar level, just north of Mount Hermon, and returned the same way.
