drone USSatellite imagery has revealed a previously unreported US drone base in Jordan. Flying from the remote desert air base in the northeastern part of the country, U.S.-built MQ-9 Reaper drones are in a perfect position to monitor and strike targets in Iraq and Syria.

This is the second Reaper base — after Muwaffaq Salti — that we know exists in Jordan.

A review of imagery suggests the drones relocated to the base between November 2014 and January 2015, not long after U.S. forces began targeting Islamic State in Syria.
