Blog #1: Jordan unleashes wrath on ISIS: 'This is just the beginning'

ISIS, a terrorists group based out of Syria, stirred up trouble with Jordan as they captured a Jordanian pilot and burned him to death. Jordan, frustrated about the event that just took place, retaliated with a strike of their own. They sent out thirty fighter jets to strike back at the terrorist group. Jordanians stated, “This is just the beginning and you shall know who the Jordanians are.” The planned ISIS targets were their training camps and arms and ammunition deposits. Both were claimed to be hit and destroyed. Jordan’s minister, Nasser Judeh, stated with confidence that this was just the beginning of the retaliation of the pilot’s death. The Jordan government fired up about the event stated “we are going after them wherever they are, and with everything we have.” Safi al-Kasasbeh, the pilot’s father, was enraged to hear about his son’s death and told CNN that King Abdullah II had promised him that Jordan would avenge his son’s death. Jordan is not the only country that is dealing with the terrorist group. United States is leading many Eastern nations and Jordan happens to be one of them. ISIS revealed the video of the pilot’s death and that caused surrounding nations to vow strong actions towards them. The country is trying to strategize their attacks for substantial results. Another big action took place against the ISIS group where Jordan executed two prisoners of moderate value to the terrorist organization. ISIS wanted to send a message to surrounding nations by displaying the slaughter of the pilot repeatedly on big screens around the city of Raqqa. It is obvious the fire is fueled between the two countries and the fighter attacks has helped unite the Muslims against ISIS.
