Father of Executed Jordanian Pilot Calls for Annihilation of ISIS (Video)
Safi al-Kasasbeh, the father of murdered pilot Muath al-Kasasbeh, says the Jordanian government must annnihilate ISIS following the release of a video showing his son being burnt to death.
Moath al-Kasasbeh was burnt to death by ISIS in a video released on Tuesday.

The Daily Mail reported:
The mother of the Jordanian pilot burned alive by the Islamic State has reportedly been admitted to hospital hours after horrific video of her son’s death emerged.
Issaf al-Kasasbeh is believed to have fainted after learning that her son, Moaz, had suffered such a barbaric killing, according to Jordanian media.
Dr Ali Hamiada, the director of Karak Hospital in Jordan, said her condition was stable.
News of her illness came as her husband Safi al-Kasasbeh demanded a swift and brutal retaliation to his son’s murder.
Jordan followed through on its promise to execute two ISIS-linked prisoners, including a would-be female suicide bomber, but Mr al-Kasasbeh said this did not go far enough.
‘I demand the revenge be greater than executing prisoners. I demand the ISIS organisation be annihilated,’ he said.
‘This murderous organisation, made up of militants from all the world countries, is acting in barbaric ways, violating all the international laws, codes of ethics, and prisoners’ conventions.
‘That is why I strongly demand the government to swiftly take revenge for the blood of Moaz and the dignity of our country,’ he told Al Jazeera.
The pilot’s father appealed for mercy from ISIS before the execution video was released.
