Within an hour of the 22-minute-long video’s publication, Jordan reportedly moved six ISIS-linked prisoners to a jail in the south of the country which is usually used for state executions. It is later understood to have confirmed that al-Rishawi’s execution is scheduled for early tomorrow morning.
Speaking on Jordanian TV this evening, Mamdouh al-Ameri, spokesman for the Jordanian armed forces, confirmed the piloit’s death and vowed revenge.
He said: ‘While the military forces mourn the martyr, they emphasise his blood will not be shed in vain. Our punishment and revenge will be as huge as the loss of the Jordanians.’
