ISIS Releases Audio Negotiation for Jordanian Pilot

ISIS has released audio recordings of negotiations for the release of a Jordanian pilot who was later killed by the armed group.

In a YouTube video, Abu Muhammad al-Maqdisi, a prominent Salafi spiritual figure, could be heard negotiating with ISIL over the fate of pilot Moaz al-Kassasbeh.

In the video, ISIS accused Jordan-based Maqdisi, who appeared to conduct the negotiations on behalf of the Jordanian government, of being a spy for the US and Jordanian authorities.

“God has placed this pilot in your hands as a key to release your sister Sajida al-Rishawi, so don’t make things too complicated,” Maqdisi told ISIS in the recordings, referring to a female would-be suicide bomber whose release ISIS demanded in return for handing over Kassasbeh.
