Pictures of the tearful meeting emerged after the widow revealed that she learned of her husband's death when she read a Facebook post saying: 'Rest in peace, Muath [Moaz]'.

Anwar Tarawneh had been married to Moaz al-Kasasbeh for just five months when he was captured by ISIS.

The meeting came as Jordan said its warplanes had launched dozens of new airstrikes against the ISIL terrorist group after vowing a harsh response to Lt al-Kasasbeh's death.

Jordan's Foreign Minister Nasser Judeh warned this was just the start of its offensive against the terror group, vowing to 'go after them with everything that we have'.

Speaking to The Independent on Thursday, Ms Tarawneh said she was at a sit-in protest being held in support of Kasasbeh on Tuesday when she received a tearful phone call from her mother.

By then, her 26-year-old husband had been an ISIS hostage for five weeks after his aircraft was shot down over Raqqa. Concerned that something was wrong, she checked her mobile.

'It was only when I opened Facebook on my phone that I saw the post,' she said.
