Arab news media is reporting over the weekend that the US-led coalition fighting Islamic State twice failed to rescue the Jordanian pilot and other hostages that were taken captive by the extremist jihadist group somewhere in Syria.

According to media reports, coalition special forces launched a daring pre-dawn raid on Friday in an attempt to extricate Muath al-Kasaesbeh, an aviator with the Royal Jordanian Air Force, who is being held by ISIS gunmen in the northern Syrian town of Raqqa.
