Isha begins when the RED twilight of maghrib has disappeared (Sh al-Albaani)

Q: Salaat-ul-Maghrib – when does it’s time last until?

A: The time for maghrib as is mentioned in the hadeeth in Saheeh Muslim is up until the disappearance of the red twilight – i.e.: it lasts about an hour or so. And we have checked this visually ourselves here. And based on this assessment we consider that they call the adhan for Isha here about half an hour late – i.e. everywhere. And they also call the adhan of maghrib here about 10 minutes late – they delay it by a full 10 minutes. Therefore we break our fast whether in or outside Ramadan about 10 minutes before their calling the adhaan …

(Note that Sh al-Albaani rahimahullaah was based in Jordan)
