Still seething in anger over the videotaped execution of its captive air force pilot, Jordan is considering a military ground campaign against Islamic State, according to an Arab press report on Thursday.

The Amman-based daily newspaper Al Arab Al Yawm reported on Thursday that the Jordanians are mulling a “quick-strike, lightning blow” against ISIS. The report also stated that the government would then re-evaluate its strategy within the framework of the international, US-led coalition fighting the Islamic State.
