Topic: U.S. moving to resupply Jordan's military with munitions: officials


By Phil Stewart and Suleiman Al-Khalidi WASHINGTON/AMMAN (Reuters) - The United States is readying plans to resupply Jordan with munitions in the coming weeks, possibly including precision-guided arms, expediting support for the kingdom as it expands its role in airstrikes against the Islamic State (IS), officials say. The State Department and Pentagon declined comment on any future moves to assist Jordan with requests for weapons. U.S. efforts to expedite delivery of munitions and other weapons follow a vocal appeal from Jordan's King Abdullah to American lawmakers last week for greater U.S. support.
