The United Arab Emirates has launched a series of air strikes on Islamic State militants from an air base in Jordan, according to the national news agency.

The official WAM agency quoted the General Command of the UAE armed forces saying that Emirati F-16s carried out the strikes.

It said the fighters returned safely to base after striking their targets.

The Emirates is one of the most prominent members of the US-led coalition against IS. American officials say the UAE halted air strikes in December, and the new statement is the first confirmation it has restarted combat operations.
