The depravity of the Islamic State terror group in Syria and Iraq plumbed new levels yesterday as it released a video showing Jordanian pilot Moaz al-Kasasbeh being burned alive while locked in a cage.
The chilling footage, entitled ‘Healing the Believers’ Chests’, shows the captured airman 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 alight.
Flames are seen quickly spreading across the dirt to the cage, where they completely engulf the helpless pilot in images that are far too distressing to publish. Extremists pour debris, including broken masonry, over the cage, which is then flattened by a bulldozer.
The release of the expertly-edited video – which represents a new level of barbarity from a group notorious for its savagery – has 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 reportedly moved ISIS-linked prisoners to a jail in the south of the country which is usually used for state executions.
