Jordan’s King Abdullah II says Airstrikes are Ramping Up in Syria, Iraq

As Fox News [1] reported from their exclusive interview with the Jordanian king:

“Jordan’s King Abdullah II said Monday that airstrikes have increased inside Syria and Iraq following the murder of a Jordanian pilot burned to death earlier this year by Islamic State terrorists.”

“Abdullah, who was interviewed on “Special Report with Bret Baier,” said he has not ruled out using ground troops inside Iraq.  He also talked about the possibility of taking out ISIS fighters one stronghold at a time.”

“We stepped up big time. We are at the moment he only Arab country in Syria alongside the United States,” Abdullah told Baier. “We are the only Arab country operating alongside the Iraqis in Iraq alongside the coalition. As the Iraqis and the coalition increase their tempo for the next operation in Iraq, so will Jordan increase their tempo inside of Iraq.”
