ISIS Sets Up Public Screenings of Horrific Murder in Raqqa

ISIS has erected large screens around its capital city of Raqqa to broadcast the barbaric murder of Jordanian pilot, Moaz al-Kasasbeh, who was burned alive. The screenings have turned a heinous and inhumane act into a perverted public spectacle as crowds coalesce cheering, honking and chanting religious slogans.

Giant screens have been placed on the streets of the ISIS capital, streaming the murder on what appears to be a loop. The shocking 4 minute footage, titled “Muslims Joy at Burning of Jordanian Pilot,” was shot on HD cameras.

Men and young children are gathered in the streets of the city center watching and commenting aloud. At one point, the short film cuts to a young boy, no more than 6 years old, stating, “I would’ve burnt him [Moaz al-Kasasbeh] with my own hands.”

The disturbing footage aired today as Jordan’s King Abdullah has vowed “relentless war” against the Islamic State.
