Video Shows Jordanian Pilot Burned Alive By ISIS [Photos]
Islamic State terror group have released a horrific video which they claim shows Jordanian pilot Moaz al-Kasasbeh being burnt alive while locked in a cage. Kasasbeh was captured by ISIS after his F-16 fighter jet crashed in territory controlled by the militants in northern Syria in December.
The footage, which is titled 'Healing the Believers' Chests' shows the captured airman wearing an orange jumpsuit as a trail of petrol leading up to the cage is seen being set alight. Flames are seen quickly spreading to the cage where they completely engulf the helpless pilot.
The release of the video has prompted Jordan to announce it will execute all prisoners convicted of association with ISIS 'within hours'.
This would include Sajida al-Rishawi - the female failed suicide bomber whom ISIS had originally demanded Jordan release in exchange for Kasasbeh. It is later understood to have confirmed that al-Rishawi's execution is scheduled for early tomorrow morning.
Within an hour of the 22-minute-long video's publication, Jordan reportedly moved six ISIS-linked prisoners to a jail in the south of the country which is usually used for state executions.
Jordanian king Abdullah, who is currently in the US, will cut short his trip - after a hastily scheduled meeting with President Obama - and will be immediately returning to Jordan to deal with the issue.
He described ISIS as a ‘criminal and misguided group which is not related in any shape or form to our great faith.’
