The Kurdish Globe - - FRONT PAGE -

Kur­dis­tan Re­gion Pres­i­dent Mas­soud Barzani strongly con­demned the bru­tal mur­der of a Jor­da­nian pi­lot by Is­lamic State (IS) ter­ror­ists. .

On Fe­bru­ary 3, IS re­leased a video on so­cial me­dia net­works show­ing a cap­tured Jor­da­nian air force pi­lot be­ing burned alive in a cage.

The Kur­dis­tan Re­gion Pres­i­dency’s of­fi­cial web­site re­leased a state­ment in which Barzani con­demned the act in the strong­est pos­si­ble terms.

“I, and on be­half of the peo­ple of Kur­dis­tan, ex­press my con­do­lences to your Majesty, the peo­ple of Jor­dan, and the fam­ily of Moaz al-Kasas­beh,” reads the mes­sage ad­dressed to the Jor­dan King Ab­dul­lah.

Barzani added, “I condemn, in the strong­est terms, this in­hu­mane act by ISIS ter­ror­ists. Th­ese ter­ror­ists will pay for their crimes, and their fate is de­feat and an­ni­hi­la­tion.”

In re­sponse to the bru­tal mur­der, Jor­dan hanged two Iraqi ji­hadists, one a woman, on Wed­nes­day and Jor­dan's King Ab­dul­lah vowed a "re­lent­less" war against Is­lamic State on their own ter­ri­tory.
