US-NATO troops reportedly gathering on Jordan-Syria border
By Madison Ruppert

Yesterday Boiling Frogs Post published a report citing several anonymous sources in Jordan who witnessed foreign military forces first-hand near northern Jordanian city of al-Mafraq, which is adjacent to the border between Syria and Jordan.
As of 6:00 PM EST yesterday, the Department of Defense Press Office has yet to comment on the reports, which is far from surprising.
Boiling Frogs Post is also reporting that an anonymous journalist with an unnamed establishment media publication was informed by his editors that no follow-up on the report or coverage of the issue would be permitted.
An anonymous Jordanian military officer said that hundreds of non-Arabic speaking troops were gathering over the past two days and witnessed moving about in military vehicles between the King Hussein Air Base in al-Mafraq (roughly 10 kilometers from the Jordan-Syria border), the Jordanian villages near the Syrian border such as Albaej (5 km from the border), the vicinity of the dam of Sarhan, the villages of Zubaydiah and al-Nahdah which is adjacent to the Syrian border.
Another report relayed by Boiling Frogs Post’s source said alleges that an additional US-NATO command center had been erected in al-Houshah, which is a village near al-Mafraq.
This information was backed up by an anonymous “Iraqi journalist source in London” who said, “Some of the US forces that left the Ain al-Assad Air base in Iraq last Thursday, did not come back to the USA or its base in Germany, but were transferred to Jordan during the evening hours.”
Then Boiling Frog Post’s source Nizar Nayouf, a former Syrian journalist now operating out of London, said that he interviewed an employee of the London-based office of the Royal Jordanian Airlines who said, “At least one US aircraft carrying military personnel landed in the Prince Hassan Air base located about 100 km to the east of the city of Al-Mafraq.”
Furthermore, al Watan Voice, an Arabic news agency out of Jordan, recently reported that a western official met with King Abdullah II and requested that the Jordanian government allow an intelligence station to be erected to monitor Syrian military communications.
They report that the king categorically rejected the attempt to establish the station on the Jordanian-Syrian borders and expressed that Jordan would not take part in any military action against the Syrian people.
The surveillance center would seek to monitor, intercept and even cut off contact between senior Syrian military leaders, and access their frequencies and push them towards the idea of a military coup.
You can see James Corbett, who has an RBN show on weekdays starting at 9:00 PM PST (which I will be appearing on this coming Wednesday), speaking with Nayouf in the following video:
Nayouf further explained the role of the al-Mafraq air base in saying,
“The al-Mafraq air base, which now includes Air Force Academy, was a starting point for “conspiratorial activities” by Jordan, The UK and Israel against Syria in the past, particularly in the 1960s. In September 1968, a Syrian commando Major, Salim Hatoom, who fled to Jordan with a number of officers after a failed coup attempt, established a camp from which he started a rebel military against the then left-wing government of Syria under president Nureddin al-Atassi and Salah Jadid. By the end of 1970s and early 1980s, the Syrian Islamic Brotherhood and their military wing “At-Taleeah al-Islamiyyah al-Muqatilah” (the Islamic Militant Vanguard) used the same base for its military struggle against president Hafez a-Assad regime, in which they were being trained by the Jordanian and Israeli intelligence agents, and cars were being bombed before they were sent to the streets of Syrian cities for the killing of innocents and undermining state facilities.”
Boiling Frogs Post adds that they contact more unnamed “expert” sources on media, intelligence, and the military that relayed that the American media has been told to hold off on reporting on these troop movements until Tuesday, December 13th.
Boiling Frogs Post is still awaiting further information and confirmation from other sources in Jordan and Turkey and I will keep my readers updated as information becomes available from Boiling Frogs Post and elsewhere.
