Yes. The idea is that you are distracting or interfering with the opponents so that they are less likely to strike their target. It's a neat option, though I've not really seen it used in game very often. Since one has to forfeit their action to Aid Another, players tend to find other ways to level the playing field. Using it to add to an ally's attack roll though, has been done to great effect a few times.
