ISIS ‘using Twitter to ask for suggestions on how to kill Jordanian pilot’

Beirut: A week after the Islamic State militants captured Mu’ath al-Kaseasbeh, the terror group is asking for ‘ways to kill the Jordanian pilot’ on Twitter.

The Arabic hashtag “suggest a way to kill the pilot” has already been retweeted thousands of times, according to a news report in The Independent.

The 26-year-old First Lieutenant, also known as Moaz, is the first foreign military pilot to be captured by the militant group on December 24 since the start of the US-led campaign against Islamic State.

He was captured after his technical failure forced him to eject out of his in the IS-held city of Raqqa. Raqqa has been declared as the ‘capital’ by the terror group.

The Islamic State even published an interview with the pilot which was published in their monthly magazine which was posted online in English.

While the Jordanian government has refused to comment after the interview was published, the US has denied that the aircraft has been shot down by the militant group.

Though there were some views on Twitter against the pilot, there were also saner comments on the social media in support of Mu’ath al-Kaseasbeh.

Supporters of the captured pilot have come up with a hashtag “We Are All Moaz” to express their support to the family of the pilot.

The messages have also been posted by the members of the royal family of Jordan including Queen Raina.

She posted an image of a fighter jet in the shape of Jordanian flag on Instagram with the hashtag.
