Amos Yadlin, the Zionist Union's candidate for defense minister, spoke with Jordanian Ambassador to Israel Walid Obeidat on Wednesday, expressing condolences after a Jordanian pilot was burned to death by Islamic State terrorists on Tuesday.

"This is a shocking incident that was carried out by people who have lost all trace of humanity. All of Israel commiserates with the Jordanian people - there is no supposition or coalition on this matter," Yadlin said.

"Jordan is a strategic ally of Israel and the cooperation between the countries is important to the war on terror. The incident yesterday highlights the importance of forming regional alliances that include all of the pragmatic actors as part of the fight against the extremists that threaten the stability of the entire region," he added.

Yadlin also praised as an important step Jordan's decision to send Obeidat back to Tel Aviv earlier this week, after he had been recalled in November over tensions at the Temple Mount in Jerusalem.
