They say al-Baghdadi is frightened.
If this is the case, that 7000 Islamic State jihadis have been killed in only a few days, then the increase in Jordanian involvement in the air strikes on IS, is a welcome improvement.
Jordan will not hesitate to kill ISIS leader
THE head of ISIS is “frightened” for his life after 7000 jihadists were slaughtered in air strikes this weekend, Jordanian officials crowed.
Islamic State leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi has been on the run since the weekend, a Jordanian general boasted, as his nation ramped up bombing efforts in Syria in response to the barbaric killing of captured Jordanian pilot Muath al-Kaseasbeh.
“He is frightened by what we did in the last three days,” Maj. Gen. Mansour al-Jabour told NBC News. “[ISIS leadership] always hide and they are always on the move but we have assets always in the air for an opportunity to target al-Baghdadi and his gang.”
The air force chief announced Sunday that his jet fighters had conducted 56 bomb raids in just three days against ISIS opposition — killing at least 7,000 militants, according to The Christian Times.
