Damascus, Syria – On Sunday, Bahraini military reportedly deployed fighter jets to Jordan, to launch operations against extremists of the Islamic State (IS/ISIL) in Syria and Iraq, local media said.

The Bahraini warplanes will be conducting airstrikes under the banner of the U.S.-led international coalition.

“A group of Bahraini Royal Air Force planes have landed in the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan to participate in the international effort to annihilate terrorism,” BNA agency reported.

After the execution of the Jordanian pilot Moaz Kassasbeh at the hands of the IS group two weeks ago, Jordan intensified its strikes against the radical group’s locations in Syria and Iraq. 

Last week, the UAE deployed several F-16 fighter jets to Jordan to carry out airstrikes against the IS militant group.
