Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman on Wednesday sent his condolences to Jordanian King Abdullah after a pilot from the Hashemite Kingdom was burned alive and killed by Islamic State terrorists the previous day.

"The citizens of Israel, who have been dealing with cruel terror of every kind for 66 years, identify with [Jordan's] pain and support the harsh and decisive Jordanian response to the event," he said after Jordan executed two terrorists in response to the incident.

"King Abdullah must be praised on his quick and powerful response to this despicable terror. Already this morning they executed a terrorist which ISIS had wished to have released, as well as another al-Qaida operative. Soon they will execute more terrorists imprisoned in the Kingdom," he said.
