Jordan -- still reeling from the brutal murder of one of its pilots by the jihadi group -- also rejected the claim, calling it an "old and sick trick" to deter coalition strikes.The claim came as Amman said dozens of its jet fighters had struck ISIS, widening their campaign from Syria to include targets in neighboring Iraq.ISIS did not post any pictures of a body with its claim.In Jordan thousands of people, including the nation's Queen Rania, marched on Friday to demand retribution against ISIS for the horrifying murder of pilot Moaz al-Kassasbeh.The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, a British-based monitoring group, said more than 30 ISIS fighters were killed in coalition raids Friday around Raqqa.ISIS offered to spare Kassasbeh's life and free Japanese journalist Kenji Goto -- who was later beheaded -- in exchange for an Iraqi woman, Sajida al-Rishawi.Jordanian television suggested Kassasbeh was killed on Jan. 3, before ISIS offered to spare him and free Goto in return for Rishawi's release.Jordan hanged Rishawi after ISIS released the video showing the murder of the pilot, who was taken prisoner in December after his F-16 crashed in Syria.
