Jordan: Release Our Pilot, or We'll Kill All ISIS Captives

By    |   Friday, 30 January 2015 02:11 PM

Jordan has issued an ultimatum to the Islamic State that it will execute its ISIS prisoners if the terrorist group kills the Jordanian pilot it had captured.

Jordan has reportedly sent a warning to the jihadist group saying that would-be suicide bomber Sajida al-Rishawi, along with ISIS commanders it has captured on the battlefield, will be "quickly judged and sentenced" to death if Muath al-Kaseasbeh is killed, The Daily Mail is reporting.

The threat comes a day after the deadline, which was reportedly set by ISIS, passed in which a prisoner swap was supposed to take place between Jordan and the terrorist group. There has also been no word about the current condition of either al-Kaseasbeh or Japanese hostage Kenji Goto.

According to intelligence sources, if ISIS is refusing to confirm that the Jordanian pilot, who was captured in December in Syria, is still alive, it likely means that the exchange won't happen.

Jordan issued the ultimatum in a statement.

Al-Rishawi was involved in a suicide bomb attack in 2005, in which 60 people were killed in Amman, which is the capital of Jordan. Her explosive belt failed to detonate.

Jordan had told ISIS that it would free the woman if the terrorist group promised not to kill al-Kaseasbeh. She was supposed be released early Thursday evening.

ISIS had said that it would kill the Jordanian pilot within 24 hours if al-Rishawi wasn't released by that time.

A Jordanian government spokesman said it was waiting for confirmation that the pilot was still alive before releasing al-Rishawi, which had still not been confirmed by Friday morning.
