Jordan executed two convicted jihadis in retaliation for the killing of one of its air force pilots by the Islamic State (IS) militants, BBC reported .

The executed terrorists included Sajida al-Rishawi, a woman, whose release the IS had demanded as a condition for releasing Jordanian pilot Moaz al-Kasasbeh. Al Qaeda operative Ziyad Karboli was also hanged, the report added.

Jordan was reportedly considering to release Al-Rishawi, who was sentenced to death for her role in a failed attack in Amman in 2005, to secure the release of its pilot.

Jordan Tuesday vowed an “earth-shattering” response after IS posted an online video apparently showing the pilot’s execution.

Describing the pilot as “martyr”, Mamdouh al-Ameri, a spokesman for the Jordanian armed forces, said: “His blood will not be shed in vain. Our punishment and revenge will be as huge as the loss of the Jordanians.”
