KABUL: (Middle East Press) The Jordanian army’s jet fighters have conducted 56 revengeful airstrikes in three successive days against the ISIL Takfiri militants in northern Syria.
“We achieved what we aimed at,” Air Force chief Gen Mansour al-Jbour said referring to “punishment and revenge” vow for the killing of the 26-year-old pilot, Moaz al-Kassasbeh, who was seen in a video trapped in a metal cage, surrounded by flames and burnt alive by ISIL terrorists last week.
Jbour further added that the Jordanian forces are “determined to wipe the ISIL from the face of the Earth,” noting that the three successive days of air assaults were “just the beginning’ of campaigns.”
Jordan says the air strikes are focused on ISIL stronghold in the northern city of Raqqa.
According to officials, the strikes targeted the militant’s weapon depots, training centers, warehouses and military barracks.
