A horrific footage has been released by ISIS terrorists showing a Syrian pilot being burned to death. The pilot, who has been identified as Azzam Eid was captured 18 ago in the April of last year after the terror group shot down his Syrian Arab Air Force MiG 23 and he ejected out of the plane.
The ISIS commanders have released the graphic footage, which was filmed at an unknown date, showing Mr Eid being burned alive.

The footage shows Eid, with his head clean shaved as he wears an orange boiler suit and with a chain around his neck that is held fight by a fighter.
The savages then secure him to a tree before the set his clothing ablaze. The pilot is heard screaming in pain as the fire consumes him.
It remains unclear as to when the killing was conducted as IS did not give any further details about the footage. The film also contained an old footage of IS fighters in Iraq and Syria.
This is the second time that the terror group has used the same method to kill a pilot and ISIS chiefs say that using fire is in revenge for the destruction that a plane’s bombs wreak on the ground.
ISIS shot down the Russian-built aircraft after it took off from the Al Dumayr military airbase east of Damascus in April 2016. One of the news agency which is affiliated to ISIS, the Amaq news aganecy, said at the time that the captured pilot was from Hama.
The poor-quality footage showed the remnants of a burning aircraft, which is believed to have been taken down near Bir Al-Qassab. Back in December 2014, ISIS shot down a warplane from the US-led coalition striking the group in Syria and captured the Jordanian pilot alive. The terror group later burned the pilot, Maaz al-Kassasbeh alive in a cage and posted video footage of his death in the internet.
