Jordan attacks ISIS held areas in Syria
Jordan has begun its attack on the ISIS as more and more fighter jets are flying over Syria and assaulting the areas controlled by ISIS.
The retaliation comes straight after the inhumane execution of Kasasbeh who was shown getting burned alive in a video sent by the ISIS. Jordan’s King Abdulla II had vowed that he would do everything he could to avenge the death of Kasasbeh and that his death wont go in vain.
King Abdullah even went on to say that the ongoing attack in Syria wont end there but will continue on upto Iraq where the ISIS are more in number.
The barbaric act by the ISIS had met with condemnation from world over even from many of the Arab nations which described the execution by ISIS to be non Islamic.
In Jordan many came out to rally against the death of their nation’s soldier outside the house of the King’s and Kasasbeh’s family.
The ISIS on the other hand has been believed to have set a reward for any one who destroys the planes or even capture the pilots who are attacking their base.
Many other Arab nations are also believed to come out in support of Jordan’s offensive by providing them with whatever aid they can.
However the prospect of sending ground soldiers is not yet decided but there is a high possibility once the F-16s have done the neeeded damage to the ISIS held areas.
