Jordan Strikes Back - 08 Feb 2015
Jordan carried out a third straight day of air strikes on Islamic State targets on Saturday, it said, in response to the group's killing of a captive Jordanian pilot.

“Sorties of air force fighters today bombed bases of the Daesh terror gang,” state television said in a bulletin, using a derogatory Arabic name for the militants. It said some of the targets were in the Syrian city of Raqqa but gave no other details.

Jordan began on Thursday what it called an "earthshaking" response to the death of the pilot.

Saif al-Kasaesbeh (3rd R), father of Jordanian pilot Muath al-Kasaesbeh, prays at the family's clan headquarters with other mourners in the city of Karak February 4, 2015. Jordan hanged two Iraqi jihadists on Wednesday including a female militant in response to an Islamic State video showing captured Jordanian pilot Muath al-Kasaesbeh being burnt alive by the hardline group. Islamic State had demanded the release of the woman, Sajida al-Rishawi, in exchange for a Japanese hostage who it later beheaded. Sentenced to death in 2005 for her a role in a suicide bomb attack in Amman, Rishawi was executed at dawn, a security source and state television said. Jordan, which is part of the U.S.-led alliance against Islamic State, has promised an "earth-shaking response" to the killing of its pilot, Muath al-Kasaesbeh, who was captured in December when his F-16 crashed over northeastern Syria. Kasaesbeh's father said the two executions were not enough and urged the government to do more to avenge his death. REUTERS/Muhammad Hamed (JORDAN - Tags: POLITICS CIVIL UNREST)
