AMMAN - Jordanian air force jets bombed Islamic State militants' hideouts on Thursday, state television said, resuming the intensified raids that ended at the weekend after three days.

"The airforce has bombed and destroyed select targets of the Daesh criminal gang this afternoon," it said. "Daesh" is a derogative term for the militants.

The raids are the first the Jordanian military have announced since three straight days of aerial bombing that ended on Saturday in retaliation for the killing of a pilot.

UAE air force jets that arrived in Amman this week started raids against Islamic State militants in Syria on Tuesday.
