It is definitely Jordanian. Here is a comparison to your medal and the Royal Jordanian Army Badge. Perhaps the initials on the back can be tied to a Jordanian Regiment - Jordanian Military Service Corps or suchlike. Or could be Arab Legion.
Hope this helps
Dave

So, un-issued, or at least unnamed, sports award for a regimental sports day or some such.
