Rabat – King of Jordan Abdullah II said on Monday that Morocco pulled back from the US-led coalition against terror group Islamic State in Syria and Iraq.The Jordanian monarch, who was interviewed on Fox News’s “Special Report with Bret Baier,” said that Jordan is now the only Arab country carrying airstrikes alongside the United State in Syria.He said that the UAE and Bahrain joined his country straight after the murder of a Jordanian pilot burned to death earlier this year by Islamic State terrorists. They have since pulled back because of the ongoing tensions in Yemen, he added. “We are the only Arab country operating alongside the Iraqis in Iraq alongside the coalition,” he said. As the Iraqis and the coalition increase their tempo for the next operation in Iraq, so will Jordan increase their tempo inside of Iraq.”He said he is glad to see his country’s relationship with Morocco is getting stronger, especially as both countries are dealing with threats from terrorist groups.“The king of Morocco is a strong partner with me in dealing with Khawarij [the outlaws of Islam] the Islamic terrorist organizations, especially in Western Africa. His relationship with the United States has improved and I think that is a good thing,” he told Fox News’s Bret Baier.King Abdullah II said he hates to use the word “extremists” to describe terror group the Islamic State, formerly known as ISIS or ISIL, “because they take that as a badge of honor.”“These are outlaws that have nothing to do of understanding what our religion is about. And they have basically targeted Muslims before they target other religions and more Muslims have died because of them than any other religion,” he said.Asked about the Islamic State, King Abudllah II said that it’s a franchise whether it is Al Qaeda, ISIS, Boko Haram in Nigeria or Somalia’s Al Shabab.“The next worst element that comes up whatever name they give themselves everybody else will turn and give allegiance to that group,” he said.
Phoenix-based TOMCAR Holding, which produces high-end all-terrain vehicles for mining will exhibit at MINExpo 2016. In addition to featuring its diesel unit, TOMCAR will introduce its newly-released electrical vehicle, one of the only advanced, high-performance 100% electrical all-terrain vehicle offered worldwide.“Mining professionals are loving the fact that our electrical vehicle emits no diesel particulate matter, which the Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA) has deemed dangerous to workers’ health,” said Ram Zarchi, CEO of TOMCAR. “Low maintenance costs, no emissions, and less noise make this an easy sell for anyone who wants to take their work environment to the next level of safety and performance.”The TOMCAR diesel vehicle, meanwhile, continues to be an industry favourite, having been heralded “the best mining vehicle we’ve come across in decades” by Innovative Underground Transport in Australia.TOMCAR’s mining vehicles have been in service, extensively, in underground mining for over 10 years. Over the past decade, mining has become TOMCAR’s second largest market sector (after military) and the company has developed a customizable, mining vehicle – incorporating feedback from dozens of operators. TOMCAR has also developed a preventative maintenance program specifically developed for mines which is implemented, by its team, on-site.Its rugged construction and fully-welded high-grade steel frame make it ideal for operating under the extreme conditions and tough demands of mining industries, while providing operators with unmatched safety designed to last decades with quick on-site repair. The TOMCAR is built to withstand constant abuse with minimal maintenance and equipment downtime, is easily maintained, and can be repaired on-site.“The TOMCAR has not disappointed,” said Johannes Sondergaard, K1 Mine Engineer at Potash Mine in Canada. “The TOMCAR has an incredibly low centre of gravity. This, in combination with the high ground clearance, independent suspension, and rollover protection has left me feeling safe and comfortable in all of the operating conditions that the mine has to offer. It has no trouble powering four adults through the hills and valleys of the mine. It is a pleasure to find a machine that I actually enjoy driving throughout the mine for a twelve-hour shift.”
