Jordan announces execution of six ISIS prisoners after pilot Moaz al-Kasasbeh was burnt alive

February 4, 2015 9:18 am

This is just sick..The world has gone crazy!!!

 Militants fighting for the Islamic State terror group in Syria and Iraq
have released a shocking video they claim shows Jordanian pilot Moaz
al-Kasasbeh being burnt alive while locked in a cage.

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 in images that are far too distressing to
publish.

The release of the video has prompted Jordan to announce it will execute
all prisoners convicted of association with ‘within hours’. This
would include Sajida al-Rishawi – the female failed suicide bomber whom
ISIS had originally demanded Jordan release in exchange for Kasasbeh.
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. It is later
understood to have confirmed that al-Rishawi’s execution is scheduled
for early tomorrow morning.
Kasasbeh was captured by ISIS after his F-16 fighter jet crashed in
territory controlled by the militants in northern Syria in December.

 Jordan announces execution of six ISIS prisoners ‘within hours’ in
retaliation after release lavish video of Jordanian pilot
being TORCHED to death in a cage in yet another new low for humanity
Militants
fighting for the Islamic State terror group in Syria and Iraq have
claimed to have burned alive captured Jordanian pilot Moaz al-Kasasbeh
while he was locked helpless in a cage.
The chilling footage,
entitled ‘Healing the Believers’ Chests’, appears to show the captured
airman being set alight as the militants – infamous for their barbaric
murders – plunged new depths of depravity.
The expertly-edited
footage, filmed from several camera angles, shows the pilot wearing an
orange jumpsuit and seemingly doused in fuel, as a trail of petrol
leading up to the iron bars of the cage is seen being set ablaze.
Flames
are seen quickly spreading across the dirt to the cage where they
completely engulf the helpless pilot in images that are far too

The
executions, at about 4am local time today, came just hours after Islamic
State militants released a sickening video showing a captured Jordanian
fighter pilot being burned alive in a cage.
Jordan
had vowed a swift and lethal response and government officials this
morning revealed that two prisoners, Sajida al-Rishawi and Ziad
al-Karbouli, have already been hanged.
Al-Rishawi
had been on death row for her role in a triple hotel bombing in the
Jordanian capital Amman in 2005 that killed dozens.
The
executions took place after gruesome footage emerged showing Jordanian
pilot Moaz al-Kasasbeh being torched to death by his captors.
The release
of the expertly-edited video – which represents a new level of
barbarity from a group notorious for its savagery – prompted Jordan to
announce it would execute all six prisoners convicted of association
with ISIS at dawn today, which is usually at 6.40am (4.40am GMT).
Within
an hour of the 22-minute-long video’s publication, Jordan had
reportedly moved ISIS-linked prisoners to a jail in the south of the
country which is usually used for state executions. 
This morning, government spokesman Mohammed al-Momani announced that two of those prisoners had been executed.
Al-Rishawi
was hanged at dawn alongside Ziad al-Karbouli, an Iraqi al Qaeda
operative, who was convicted in 2008 for killing a Jordanian.
The executions took place at Swaqa prison about 50 miles (80 kilometers) south of the Jordanian capital of Amman. 
At sunrise, two ambulances carrying the bodies drove away from the prison with security escorts.
A security source familiar with the case said: They were both calm and showed no emotions and just prayed.’
It came after Momani vowed that Jordan’s response to the pilot’s killing would be ‘earth-shattering’.
Over
the past week, Jordan had offered to trade al-Rishawi, a failed suicide
bomber, for the pilot, but froze any swap after saying it had received
no proof he was still alive. 

Jordan announced early this morning that they have executed two Al-Qaeda
terrorists in retaliation for the killing of their pilot, Moath
al-Kasasbeh. The prisoners killed are; would-be al Qaeda suicide bomber
Sajida al-Rishawi and Ziad al-Karbouli.

Al-Rishawi
has been on death row for her role in a triple hotel bombing in the
Jordanian capital of Amman in 2005 that killed 57 people. She’s the same
person ISIS had asked to have in exchange for the release of Moath.

The killing of the two terrorists came just hours after ISIS released a
video showing the gruesome killing of Moath, who was burned alive in a
cage. Jordan has promised more harsh punishments. 

 
Last night
it was reported that Jordanian officials had told the 26 year-old
pilot’s devastated family that they believed the footage to be genuine
and that the man branded a ‘hero’ in his homeland was dead. 
The
video was the first time the pilot had been seen since he was captured
in December by triumphant ISIS fighters when his F-16 jet crashed near
the group’s Syrian headquarters of Raqqa during a US-Coalition led
airstrike.
‘Not in vain’   
Mamdouh
al-Ameri, spokesman for the Jordanian armed forces, confirmed the
pilot’s death and then vowed revenge, hours after the video was
released. 
In
a televised address at the time, he said: ‘While the military forces
mourn the martyr, they emphasise his blood will not be shed in vain. The
revenge will be as big as the calamity that has hit Jordan.’
King
Abdullah II, speaking during his U.S visit in Washington, also made a
statement on Jordanian TV, saying he had received of the ‘martyrdom
with sadness and deep sorrow’.
Calling
the murder a ‘cowardly act of terror’, he also pleaded for his
countrymen to stand ‘side-by-side’, vowing that Kasasbeh’s death ‘would
only make us stronger’.
he executions of Sajida al-Rishawi and a second jihadist, Ziad al-Karbouli,
were confirmed by a Jordanian government spokesman.
Officials had reacted furiously to the pictures and film, which went beyond
anything yet seen in the “execution videos” of the Islamic State
of Iraq and the Levant.
They were particularly angry as the unusual method of death seemed to confirm
reports that he had been killed several weeks ago. There had been rumours in
early January that he had been burned, and officials said on Tuesday night
they now believed he died on January 3.
That made a mockery of Isil’s demands last week that the woman suicide bomber,
Sajida al-Rishawi, be released in return for Lt Kasaesbeh’s safety, as well
as the release of Kenji Goto, the Japanese journalist.

That deal fell through after the jihadists were unable to provide Jordan with
proof of life of the pilot, and Mr Goto’s killing was confirmed on Saturday
night.

Jordanian authorities were also under great pressure from Lt Kasaesbeh’s
powerful Bedouin tribe, normally loyal to King
Abdullah
, which was demanding everything possible be done for his
release.

They had held demonstrations holding up pictures of his face in front of
government offices. On Tuesday night, there were reports of angry crowds
gathering in his home town of Karak, south of the capital Amman.

His father had been caught on camera as he was told the news of his son’s
death over a mobile phone by the army’s chief of staff during a filmed
tribal gathering.
 

“The military forces announce that the hero pilot, Moaz al-Kasaesbeh, has
fallen as a martyr, and ask God to accept him with the martyrs,” the
Jordanian military spokesman, Gen. Mamdouh al-Ameri, said on state
television after the pictures were circulated by jihadi social media forums.

“While the military forces mourn the martyr, they emphasise his blood
will not be shed in vain. Our punishment and revenge will be as huge as the
loss of the Jordanians.”

In the video, Lt Kasaesbeh is seen being led into in a cage, watched by a line
of jihadists in khaki fatigues and masks. As he appears to pray, one jihadi, “Emir
Ahmed”, steps forward to light the fuse stretching out across the
ground.

There is no speech from the British executioner of western hostages known as
Jihadi John, nor subtitles in English, as with videos of previous killings –
perhaps a sign that this was a message being sent to the Arab world, not the
West.

However, Lt Kasaesbeh is made to describe the operation which preceded his
plane being brought down on December 24 last year, and footage is shown of
people being pulled from the wreckage of a bombing raid.

Lt Kasaesbeh then stands erect in a cage as oil that has been poured around
him burns and consumes him. At the end, the cage and his remains are
bulldozed.

The video, made using the same brash production techniques as before, is
overlaid with religious chanting and the sound of a heartbeat.

King Abdullah II of Jordan cut short a visit to Washington with his foreign
minister, Nasser Judeh, to return to the capital, Amman.

“This cowardly Islamic State group that does not resemble our religion in
any way,” King Abdullah said.

“It is the duty of all Jordanian citizens to stand united, to show the
strength of this people in fighting this group. This will only give us more
strength and resistance.”

President Barack Obama said the video was “just one more indication of
the viciousness
and barbarity
of this organisation.” “This organisation is
only interested in death and destruction,” he said.

David Cameron, the Prime Minister, said: “Moaz al Kasaesbeh’s sickening
murder will only strengthen our resolve to defeat Isil. My prayers are with
his family tonight.”

Lt Kasaesbeh was captured after being shot down near the de facto Isil capital
of Raqqa, the first member of the anti-Isil coalition to be captured.
Footage released from the scene showed Isil fighters dragging him half-naked
from nearby Lake Tabqa.

Rumours of his death by burning were circulated by the Twitter account of an
underground anti-Isil group operating out of Raqqa on January 9. It said
that Isil members had been heard “talking enthusiastically” about
the killing.
