Jordan has launched 56 airstrikes against Islamic State terrorists in revenge for burning pilot Moaz al Kasasbeh to death, and vows that much more of the same is on the way.

“We achieved what we were looking for — revenge,” said Maj. Gen. Mansour al-Jabour, The Daily Mail reported. “And this is not the end. This is the beginning.”

The airstrikes have been dubbed Operation Martyr Moaz, and Jordanian authorities are targeting Islamic State’s weapon depots, training centers, warehouses and barracks, The Mail reported.
