The Islamic State released a video Tuesday purportedly showing the gruesome killing of Jordanian air force pilot Lt. Muath al-
In the video, the pilot appears to be burned alive.
The 22-minute video, titled “Healing of the Believers’ Chests,” appears to show Kaseasbeh locked in a cage and set ablaze, the Washington Post reported , citing a press release from SITE intelligence.
The video’s release comes three days after another online video showed the apparent beheading of Japanese journalist Kenji Goto.
Images from the purported Kaseasbeh slaying video spread quickly across social media Tuesday, with pro-Islamic State Twitter accounts writing “Allah Akbar” messages along with the images.
On Tuesday, Jordanian state TV confirmed Kaseasbeh’s death and claimed the pilot had been killed a month prior on Jan. 3, Fox News reported.
The Daily Mail reported that Jordan will executive six imprisoned jihadists, including failed female failed suicide bomber Sajida al-Rishawi, Wednesday morning in retribution.
