Jordan became the 3rd Arab country to send its warplanes in order to secure the no-fly zone in Libya, its Foreign Minister, Nasser Judeh, announced Wednesday.

The Kingdom is providing logistic support to back the UN Security Council resolution to enforce a no-fly zone over Libya, pointing out that Jordan will pursue efforts at all levels to help the Libyan people resolve the current crisis, Judeh explained, according to Jordan Times.

Jordan's King Abdullah personally ordered the dispatch of aircraft, carrying humanitarian aid to assist the Libyan people.

Among the Arab states, Qatar and UAE have also already joined the operation.
