Jordan Air Strikes 'destroy' ISIS 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.
