Description
Jordan has launched new air strikes against the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) in Syria, a day after King Abdullah II vowed to avenge the death of Jordanian military pilot Moaz al-Kassasbeh.

Jordan's army did not disclose what country was targeted during the operation on Thursday, but Al Jazeera has learned that Abdullah told Kassasbeh's father Safi al-Kassasbeh that the warplanes flying over their town have just returned from al-Raqqa, the ISIL stronghold in Syria.

"Planes from the Jordanian Royal Forces have just arrived from al-Raqqa now after bombarding and pounding them," al-Kassasbeh said after he was told by visiting Jordanian king. "God willing we will end their existence in Syria. We ask God to help us annihilate them."

Al Jazeera has also learned from sources in the Iraqi border police of Anbar province, in western Iraq, that Jordanian troops have moved closer towards the Iraqi border, near the Rowaished area opposite the Iraqi city of Trebil.

The sources added that the movement of a large number of troops were not unusual in the past, and that those forces have set up a camp there in the past.

Jordan is part of a US-led military coalition which has bombed ISIL targets in Syria and Iraq, but until now Jordanian warplanes are only known to have carried out raids in Syria.

ISIL controls a territory covering areas between Syria and Iraq.

women in military uniforms write messages on the bombs, with one saying: "From a brave Jordanian woman to you Baghdadi."

!GRAPHIC! Nice Face Shot! Footage shows three dead terrorists, two of them suicide bombers still wearing their suicide vests while trying to disguise themselves as Syrian Army soldiers (notice their uniforms and the absence of beards on their faces). This is part of the suicide bombings that rocked Saadallah al-Jabri square in Aleppo on October 3, 2012.
