ISIL has released a video online showing the Takfiri terrorists torching the Jordanian pilot who was taken hostage in December.
The 22-minute video, which surfaced on social media on Tuesday, showed the pilot, Moaz al-Kassasbeh, burned to death.
The pilot was seen dressed in an orange jumpsuit and surrounded by flames of fire inside a metal cage.
Kassasbeh was captured by ISIL on December 24, 2014, after his F-16 jet crashed while flying over northern Syria on a mission against the terrorists.
The Jordanian state television had earlier stated that the pilot was killed on January 3. However, Amman on Sunday pledged to save the soldier after ISIL declared decapitation of a Japanese hostage.
Jordan “will do everything it can to save the life and secure the release of its pilot,” Jordanian government spokesman, Mohammed al-Momeni, said.
“All state organizations have been mobilized to secure the proof of life that we require so that he can be freed and returned to his home,” Momeni added.
The terrorist group had threatened to execute the captured pilot if Amman failed to hand over Sajida al-Rishawi, a female terrorist linked to ISIL, in exchange for the Japanese hostage by a January 29 deadline.
After the video was released on Tuesday, reports said the Jordanian government has decided to execute Rishawi along with five other terrorists affiliated with ISIL.
The terrorist group also released a video on Saturday purportedly showing the decapitation of the Japanese hostage, Kenji Goto.
Momeni condemned the beheading, saying, “We spared no effort, in coordination with the Japanese government, to save his life.”
