Action against ISIS increased after the Jordanian pilot dead


“This is just a beginning. You will know who the Jordanians are!” said publicly a Jordanian military representative. Foreign Minister Nasser Judeh told to the media that Jordan was going after IS “with everything that we have”. On Wednesday, Jordan responded to the killing of the pilot by executing two convicts, including Sajida al-Rishawi, a failed female suicide bomber, and an al-Qaeda operative. At the same time, inside the coalition against ISIS some necessary measures to put in place a system for more rapid search and rescue of pilots in danger were made. Two days ago, the United States Central Command notified Emirates officials that they had sent additional rescue helicopters and crew members to Erbil. Coalition nations conducting airstrikes in Syria include the U.S., Bahrain, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, and the United Arab Emirates. U.S. House of Representatives Speaker John Boehner said on Thursday he expected President Barack Obama to seek congressional authorization soon for using military force against Islamic State and also called for speeding up assistance to Jordan.
