Syrian Arab Air Force pilot Azzam Eid

ISIS terrorists have released horrific footage showing a Syrian pilot being burned to death – some 18 months after he was first captured.

Azzam Eid was seized in April last year after the regime shot down his Syrian Arab Air Force MiG 23 and he parachuted clear.

Graphic footage, filmed at an unknown date, has been released by ISIS commanders showing Mr Eid being burned alive.

The video shows Eid with his head clean shaven and wearing an orange boiler suit and with a chain around his neck that is held fight by a fighter.

He is then secured to a tree and his clothing set ablaze. The man can reportedly be heard screaming in pain while the fire consumes him. 

It was not clear when the killing occurred and IS did not give further details in the video. The film included old footage of IS fighters in Syria and Iraq. 

It is the second time they have used the 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. 

The terror group shot down the Russian-built aircraft after it took off from the Al Dumayr military airbase east of Damascus in April 2016.

The Amaq news agency, which is affiliated to ISIS, said at the time that captured the pilot was from Hama.

Poor-quality video footage showed the remains of a burning aircraft. The aircraft is believed to have come down near Bir Al-Qassab, 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 terrorists later burned pilot Maaz al-Kassasbeh alive in a cage and posted video footage of his death online.

The U.N. General Assembly (File photo)

"Approved in a 151-6 vote with nine abstentions, the United Nations (UN) General Assembly resolution stated that 'any actions taken by Israel, the occupying power, to impose its laws, jurisdiction and administration on the Holy City of Jerusalem are illegal and therefore null and void and have no validity whatsoever.'

The resolution was similar to previous Jerusalem-related measures passed in recent years by the UN cultural body UNESCO, which omitted the name 'Temple Mount' and only used the Muslim term for the holy site, 'Haram al-Sharif.'

The six countries that voted against Thursday's resolution were Canada, the Marshall Islands, Micronesia, Nauru, the U.S. and Israel. The nine countries that abstained were Australia, Cameroon, Central African Republic, Honduras, Panama, Papua New Guinea, Paraguay, South Sudan and Togo.

In addition to the Jerusalem measure, the General Assembly passed a resolution condemning Israel's control over the Golan Heights, calling the area Syrian territory and stating that Israeli 'occupation' is a 'a stumbling block in the way of achieving a just, comprehensive and lasting peace in the region,' despite the six-year-long civil war raging in Syria..."
