Islamic State leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi 'scared' after three-day bomb raid: Jordan

Jordan says that Islamic State leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi is scared and on the run after the Jordanian air force killed 7000 jihadists in three days of airstrikes in northeastern Syria.



Melbourne: Jordan says that Islamic State leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi is scared and on the run after the Jordanian air force killed 7000 jihadists in three days of airstrikes in northeastern Syria.

Jordan conducted around 56 air raids in response to burning to death of captured Jordanian pilot Muath al-Kaseasbeh.

According to News.com.au, Maj. Gen. Mansour al-Jabour said that Baghdadi was frightened by what Jordan did in the last three days.

He said that IS leadership was always hiding and they are always on the move but Jordan has the assets always in the air for an opportunity to target al-Baghdadi and his gang.

Earlier, Jordan's Foreign Minister Nasser Judeh said that the country's air strikes on Islamic State militants was "the beginning of our retaliation" for the recent execution of captured Jordanian pilot.

Jordan had earlier bombed various sites in Syria but Judeh said that the country will also target the group in Iraq now.

Jordan is one of four Arab states to have taken part in the anti-IS air strikes in Syria.
