Arizona National Guardsmen among those injured in Jordan drone strike
The overnight drone strike happened in northeast Jordan near the Syrian border. Gov. Hobbs said in a statement that she is watching the situation and is in contact with the state’s National Guard Adjutant General Muehlenbeck for status updates on the guardsmen.
The current Arizona National Guard service members in Jordan were sent to the Middle East in late September 2023 in support of Operation Spartan Shield. They’re tasked with providing “law and order and personal security capabilities” for about one year, an Arizona National Guard spokesperson said. Information on the attack is still being investigated, and it’s unknown how many Arizona servicemembers were injured in the attack.
