Jordan says it has carried out airstrikes against Daesh targets in southern Syria, hitting an arms depot, a warehouse for making car bombs and barracks used by the terrorist group.
The state news agency Petra on Saturday quoted the military as saying drones and precision-guided munitions killed and wounded an unspecified number of Daesh militants. It says Friday's strikes also targeted an Daesh-held former Syrian army post.
Pro-Western Jordan has carried out such strikes before as part of a U.S.-led alliance against Daesh in Iraq and Syria.
The latest attacks came after King Abdullah II held high-level meetings in Washington about a possible U.S. shift in Syria policy.
President Donald Trump has raised the possibility of safe zones in Syria, an idea critics say could escalate U.S. military engagement.
