Hours after King Abdullah of Jordan vowed to wage "relentless" war against the Islamic State, Jordanian airstrikes targeted militants in eastern Syria. The fighter jets have already reportedly returned home after carrying out a mission coordinated with coalition allies.

Jordan had previously been divided on joining the offensive against ISIS, but that uncertainty disappeared after a video showed the brutal killing of Jordanian air force pilot Moaz al-Kassasbeh, who was burned alive.

Jordan initially responded by executing two militant prisoners, including would-be suicide bomber Sajida al-Rishawi, whose release ISIS had originally demanded.
