ISIS has released a video allegedly showing a Syrian pilot that the extremists captured more than a year ago being set on fire while alive.
The video released late Thursday allegedly showed Maj. Azzam Eid being chained to a tree while wearing a red uniform before being set on fire. The man could be heard screaming in pain before his body became charred.
It was not clear when the killing occurred and ISIS did not give further details in the video released. The video included old footage of ISIS fighters attack in Syria and Iraq.
In April 2016, ISIS released a video showing what it said was a Syrian government fighter jet that they said they shot down east of the capital Damascus. ISIS said at the time that the pilot was captured alive.
Eid's fate has been unknown since then.
Eid's killing is similar to that of 1st Lt. Muath Al-Kasasbeh, a captured Jordanian pilot, that ISIS fighters burned alive in the northern city of Raqqa in January weeks when his F16 fighter jet crashed in the area a month earlier.
