Jordan announced it was closing its airspace Saturday as regional tensions soared after Iran threatened reprisals against Israel for a deadly air strike on its consulate building in Damascus.

The civil aviation authority in Jordan, which lies between Israel and Iran, said that the measure, initially imposed for “several hours”¬†from 2000 GMT, would be reviewed and updated regularly “in light of developments”, state media reported.
