ISIS Claims Relief Worker Kayla Mueller Killed by Coalition Airstrikes
Coalition air strikes have been stepped up after the recent brutal execution of a Jordanian pilot. ISIS released video last week which showed the pilot being burned alive in a cage. Jordan acted swiftly by executing two ISIS linked prisoners they had held on death row. Jordan officials promised they would do everything in there power to destroy the outlaw terrorist group including all out military action where ever they find the group.
Some have argued that ISIS is calculating that any press on their activities is good press and their goal is not to attain a tactical military advantage but to wage a war of public opinion. Many in the world believe that this has backfired tremendously for ISIS as they have failed to claim any moral grounding for any of there actions. Others have stated that proof of the effectiveness of the air strikes are the desperate action of ISIS and the unyielding pressure by the coalition forces.
