Medal of merit

The army chief was also awarded Jordan’s most prestigious medal of merit for displaying courage in leading the armed forces in the face of multiple threats, especially terrorism, and for his efforts to promote regional peace and stability, said the ISPR.

Earlier, the COAS was received by Gen Mashal Al-Zaben and Major General Mansour Al Jobour.
