Jordanian air force pilot loses his wings after refusing to visit Israel
A Jordanian pilot has reportedly been discharged from the Hashemite kingdom’s air force after he refused to visit Israel as part of a joint military venture between the two neighboring countries.
Social media users on the east bank of the Jordan were outraged on Wednesday after hearing the news that Majdi al-Samdi, a pilot in the Royal Jordanian Air Force, was dismissed from active duty by his commanders after notifying them that he would not be participating in a military delegation to Israel.
The news of the discharge was reported by the Channel 2-affiliated news site Mako, which cited Jordanian media outlets.
“I was trained as a pilot not to cooperate with Israel, but to fight it,” al-Samdi is reported to have told his superiors.
News of the incident was not announced by the military
