Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) has reportedly released a video which claims the terrorists have burnt alive its hostage – a Jordanian pilot Moaz al-Kassasbeh after locking him in a cage.

The footage, according to Daily Mail, is titled ‘Healing the Believers Chests.’ It shows the captured pilot in an orange jumpsuit as a trail of petrol leading up to the cage is seen being set afire.

Earlier, ISIS had agreed to release the pilot if Jordan released the convicted terrorist Sajida al-Rishawi. The Jordanian government had agreed for the swap. However, a few hours before the release of Ms. Rishawi, Jordan asked ISIS to provide it with proof of life of its pilot – a proof that he is still alive.

As the prisoner swap didn’t happen, the fate of Moaz al-Kassasbeh was not clear. Plus, Jordan had threatened that if ISIS killed Moaz al-Kassasbeh, it would retaliate by executing all ISIS prisoners.

Reuters reports that the head of the Jordanian armed forces told the family of Moaz al-Kassasbeh that he had been killed.

After capturing Moaz al-Kassasbeh, ISIS had published an interview with him in its magazine Dabiq, which was released in December.

In the introduction of the published interview, ISIS had said, “an apostate pilot flying for the crusader alliance was captured by the Islamic State after his plane was shot down with a heat-seeking anti-aircraft missile. The successful hitting of the target and subsequent crash was by Allah’s permission. All praise and thanks is due to Him alone.”

While concluding the interview, ISIS asked the pilot if he knew what the Islamic State will do with him. His reply was: “Yes… They will kill me… ”
