AMMAN — The Senate on Monday extended a JD100,000 financial support to the fund of fallen soldiers’ families of the Jordan Armed Forces-Arab Army (JAF) and security departments. Members of the Senate’s social solidarity fund, which was established early last year, handed in the support to Chairman of the Joint Chiefs-of-Staff Lt. Gen. Mahmoud Freihat, the Jordan News Agency, Petra, reported.

Senate President Faisal Fayez said that the Upper House places special attention for the social and humanitarian initiatives of JAF and other security apparatuses.

Fayez called on banks, industry and commerce chambers, companies and professional association to establish similar social solidarity funds under the difficult economic conditions facing the Kingdom.
