Jordan has taken on the Islamic State after it murdered a captured Jordanian pilot.
According to the country’s air force chief, the country has since then carried out 56 bombing raids in 3 days.
“We achieved what we aimed for. We destroyed logistics centres, arms depots and targeted hideouts of their fighters,” General Mansour al-Jbour, head of the Jordanian air force, told a news conference.
General Jbour said Jordan’s goals would continue to be to hit Islamic State leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, to stop the group’s trade in oil, and to destroy their training bases, garrisons and command centres.
“We are determined to wipe them from the face of the Earth,” he said.
