Jordan to hang all ISIS captives if group kills Jordanian pilot captured in Syria

January 30, 2015 1:22 pm

Jordanian pilot First Lieutenant Mu’ath Safi Yousef al-Kaseasbeh was captured by militants in December after his plane was shot down
while he was conducting airstrikes over Syria. Now Jordan has
threatened to kill all ISIS prisoners in their country if Mu’ath is
killed by ISIS.

From Mail Online

Jordan has
threatened to fast-track the execution of a would-be suicide bomber ISIS
is trying to free if the terror group kills its captured
pilot, it was reported today.
The
government has apparently warned that Sajida al-Rishawi and other
jailed ISIS commanders would be ‘quickly judged and sentenced’ in
revenge for Muath al-Kaseasbeh’s death.

It
comes after a deadline for a possible prisoner swap allegedly set by
ISIS passed yesterday with no clue over the fate of al-Kaseasbeh or
fellow Japanese hostage Kenji Goto.
Intelligence sources said ISIS’s refusal to prove that al-Kaseasbeh was alive meant any deal with the militants was doomed.
Now Jordan has reportedly stepped up its rhetoric by warning of its intent to retaliate if the negotiations end in bloodshed.
Elijah
Magnier, chief international correspondent for Kuwait’s Al Rai
newspaper, told MailOnline: ‘I have reliable contact in the Jordanian
government who says a message has been passed to ISIS. It
warns that if they kill the pilot they will implement the death
sentences for Sajida and other ISIS prisoners as soon as possible.’ 
Shortly
after reports of the ultimatum emerged, Jordan issued a statement saying
they were still waiting for proof that the captured F-16 pilot was
still alive.  
Jordan had agreed to an ISIS demand to free al-Rishawi who failed to fulfil her Al Qaeda mission as a suicide bomber.
In
return, ISIS said it would not execute the 26-year-old pilot, who was
seized in December after crashing near its HQ in the Syrian city of
Raqqa. 
In its
latest audio recording, ISIS threatened to kill al-Kaseasbeh if a
deadline was not kept for the release of al-Rishawi by dusk Iraq time
yesterday – around 5.30pm (2.30pm GMT).
But it appeared to make no promises to release him, another condition the Jordanian government is demanding.
Jordan has threatened to speed up the execution of a would-be suicide
bomber the Islamic State is trying to free if the terror group kills its
captured pilot Muath al-Kaseasbeh, seen above in a picture being held
by fellow hostage Kenji Goto in a video posted by ISIS last week
demanding the release of an Iraqi terrorist.
It was not clear from the recording what would happen to Mr Goto if the deadline was missed.
