An F-16 jet belonging to the Royal Jordanian Air Force has downed a drone north of the kingdom Wednesday evening near Syria.

Investigation is currently undergoing to know from where the drone came from, Al Arabiya News Channel’s correspondent reported.

The incident took place after Jordan and the United States kicked off their annual military exercises on Sunday. The drill known as “Eager Lion” saw the participation of 7,400 troops from more than 20 nations.
