A Jordanian army source said the United Arab Emirates were sending a squadron of F16 jet fighters that would be based in the kingdom, helping intensify air strikes against Islamic State to avenge the death of its pilot.

"They will be based in Jordan. This is a big boost and will be helping our brothers shorten their flying distances and intensify strikes against the militants from Jordan," an army source told Reuters on condition of anonymity.
