Footage of Jordanian pilot being burned to death pushes Jordan to speed up the execution process for five ISIS-linked prisoners.

Jordanian pilot, Muath al-Kaseasbeh is seen burned to death in ISIS' latest video release. Wearing an orange jumpsuit, trapped in a locker cage, he is engulfed in flames after a trail of petrol leading to the cage is set alight.


LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - Muath al-Kaseasbeh was previously featured, by photograph, in ISIS' video propaganda as a bargaining factor in the release of Sajida al-Rishawi, ISIS' female failed suicide bomber held prisoner in Jordan.

"Kaseasbeh was captured by ISIS after his F-16 fighter jet crashed in territory controlled by the militants in norther Syria in December," according to the Daily Mail.

Jordanian officials were prepared to release the prisoner in exchange for their pilot. "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.

We are still ready to hand over the convict Sajida al-Rishawi in return for the return of our son and our hero," stated the Jordanian government the day before ISIS released their most sickening execution video yet.

The video begins by showing Kaseasbeh being "paraded in front of heavily armed men wearing combat fatigues and yellow masks." Close ups show a swollen, heavily-bruised and bloody face.

Immediately after the video's publication, Jordan moved five of their ISIS-linked prisoners, including Rishawi, to their jail used for state executions where the prisoners reportedly will be executed within hours.

According to the Daily Mail, this horrific footage confirms rumors heard a month ago by anti-ISIS activists in Raqqa that the pilot had been killed by burning.

Jordan has since confirmed that Kaseasbeh was brutally murdered on January 3, 2015.

During the bargaining videos featuring Japanese journalist, Kenji Goto, ISIS claimed they would release Kaseasbeh and Goto. Kaseasbeh was already dead at the time and Goto was violently beheaded after the timeline for prisoner exchange expired.

"The United States strongly condemns ISIL's actions and we call for the immediate release of all those held captive by ISIL (ISIS),' White House spokeswoman Bernadette Meehan said in a statement. "We stand in solidarity with the Government of Jordan and the Jordanian people."
