Just after Jordan’s King Abdullah II vowed to bombard Islamic State strongholds until his military runs “out of fuel and bullets,” the country’s armed forces uploaded a video to YouTube showing airstrikes carried out against the terrorist group.
The airstrikes were retaliation for the militants burning captured Jordanian pilot Moaz al-Kasasbe alive. ISIS recorded the killing and released the video online.
