20% of Daesh's capabilities have been destroyed by Jordan alone over a matter of days? It seems that even its worst critics have underestimated Daesh's incompetence in any direct confrontation with the well-disciplined military force of a stable nation. The focus on destroying weapons, fuel and equipment would indicate that the infrastructure Daesh has captured recently has been targeted. At worst, this impedes their plans for expansion.

King Abdullah II of Jordan is an interesting leader. It is reassuring to see Middle Eastern powers dealing with the threat of Daesh without the need for global military intervention.

Islamic State crisis: Jordan air strikes 'destroy' IS hideouts


Jordanian aircraft flew over the pilot's village, south of Amman, a day after news of his death shocked Jordan

Jordan says it has carried out 56 air strikes in three days on Islamic State logistics sites and hideouts.

"We achieved what we aimed at," Air Force chief Gen Mansour al-Jbour said.

Jordan intensified its strikes after captured pilot Moaz al-Kasasbeh was shown being burned alive by IS.

Jordan has carried out nearly 20% of all sorties by the US-led coalition against IS in Syria so far, Gen Jbour said, adding: "We are determined to wipe them from the face of the Earth."

IS seized control of large areas of Iraq and Syria last year, prompting hundreds of raids by coalition war planes.

The focus of Jordan's air strikes is reported to be Raqqa, the IS stronghold in Syria, but no specifics were given.

Gen Jbour said the strikes had degraded nearly 20% of the militants' capabilities.

IS militants said that one of the strikes killed US aid worker Kayla Mueller, although the claim could not be verified.

A video of Lt Kasasbeh, 26, being burned alive in a cage, was posted online by IS earlier this week.

He was captured by the militants in December after his F-16 fighter jet crashed in Syria. The video is believed to have been filmed on 3 January.

Jordan had offered to swap Sajida al-Rishawi, a failed female suicide bomber, for the captured pilot. Jordan executed Rishawi and another convicted al-Qaeda operative on Wednesday.

The country of Jordan has reported that they have carried out 56 air strikes on ISIS sites over the past 72 hours. As yet, there are no specifics but the chief of the Jordanian air force, General Mansour al-Jbour claims they have done what they set out to do. General Jbour goes on to add that "We are determined to wipe them from the face of the Earth."

I'm not being unreasonable in thinking that the rest of the world needs to support Jordan in their efforts, am I?

It's great that the media is covering this news, but what I fear most during wars is the constant and oftentimes thorough leak of information. The media can do their job without giving an excessive amount of data to the public. Why? I'm sure that that's what the terrorists are waiting for - news from the outside world so they'd know what counterattack to adopt.

This time Jordanian public are in need of such information and media to extinguish some of the fire in their chests after the trauma they have experienced in Muad's death. We were waiting for the revenge minute by minute.

Because of the killing of al-Kaseasbeh, Jordan will intensify it's fight against the ISIS and not just simply rely on the coalition led by USA to which they joined last September. And as an update, for 3 consecutive days, they just keep pounding on the ISIS with their bombs and military force.

Jordan vows to completely wipe out ISIS, pounds terror positions for third consecutive day | Kicker Daily News

I think the coalition against the ISIS should be working and wipe out the ISIS at once and fast.

Over the past few days, Jordan has done some great work. According to news reports, they've taken out 20% of ISIS fighting capability. That's a really good start. Should they keep this up then the defeat of ISIS looms on the horizon. In addition to airstrikes they should send ground troops to fight the bastards.

Libyan fighter jets pay tribute to the Jordanian Pilot Moath AlKasasbeh in their own way.
