Jordan is part of a US-led military coalition targeting the Islamic State in both Syria and Iraq since last autumn. So far, its jets are known only to have carried out raids in Syria.
The Jordanian army did not say which country was targeted during these air strikes.
King Abdullah has said Jordan’s response would be harsh “because this terrorist organization is not only fighting us, but also fighting Islam and its pure values.” In a statement on Wednesday, he pledged to hit the radicals “hard in the very center of their strongholds”, reports the Guardian.
