AMMAN - Top military commanders briefed Jordan's King Abdullah on Thursday on air strikes launched against Islamic State in response to the group's killing of a captured Jordanian pilot, state television said.

"His Majesty expressed his pride in the huge efforts undertaken by the armed forces to ensure the stability of the country," state television said.

The Jordanian military earlier announced it had undertaken air strikes in territory controlled by Islamic State in northeastern Syria which security officials said focused on the outskirts of the city of al-Raqqa, the militants' stronghold.
