F16 Royal Jordanian Air Force news

The United Arab Emirates' state news agency says the country has launched a series of airstrikes on Islamic State militants from an air base in Jordan, AP reported.

The official WAM news agency quoted the General Command of the UAE Armed Forces saying that the Emirati F-16s carried out the strikes Tuesday morning.

It says the fighters returned safely back to base after striking their targets, without elaborating.

The Emirates is one of the most prominent members of the U.S.-led coalition against the Islamic State group. American officials say it halted air strikes in December, and Tuesday's statement was the first confirmation it had restarted combat operations.
