​An official source stated that with all grief, sadness and anger, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia followed up the brutal heinous crime perpetrated by the terrorist ISIS against Muslim Arab Jordanian Pilot Martyr Mu'ath Al-Kasasbeh in a barbaric coward act, which is not sanctioned by the principles of the tolerant Islam set in the Holy Quran and the Prophetic Sunnah, and which can not be perpetrated except by the bitterest enemies of Islam.

The Source said that as the Government of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia expresses this position, it reaffirms its resolve and determination to move forward in the fight against this misguided thought and all extremist organizations that support it, seek for corruption on earth, and distort the values of the tolerant Islam and its principles; and it urges the international community to intensify its efforts in the fight against terrorism in all its forms and whatever its source might be or those who stand behind it in order to eradicate it from its roots. The Government prayed to Allah Almighty to bestow mercy upon Martyr Al-Kasasbeh and offered the Kingdom's sincere condolences to the family of the martyr, the King of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan and his government, and the brotherly people of Jordan.
