The Jordanian Air Force attacked ground targets belonging to ISIS inside Southern Syria on Friday.

The attacks came on the second anniversary of the release of an ISIS propaganda video demonstrating the public execution of captured Jordanian Air Force pilot Moaz al Kassasbeh, who was burned alive in a cage.

“Jordanian Air Force planes, in memory of our martyrs who have fallen in our war against terrorism, on Friday evening targeted various positions of the terrorist gang Daesh in southern Syria,” the military said in a statement, using the Arabic acronym for ISIS.
