Jordan army planes bomb IS targets for third day

Jordan carried out a third straight day of air strikes on Islamic State 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 gave no details. Jordan began on Thursday what it called an “earthshaking” response to the death of the pilot.
