Jordan carried out a third straight day of air strikes on ISIS 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.
