Damascus urged Jordan to cooperate in fighting terrorist groups operating in Syria and condemned the Islamic State for executing Jordanian pilot Muath al-Kasaesbeh, al-Arabiya reports, citing Syrian news agency Sana.
Jordan is involved in the fight against the IS as part of a US-led international coalition. However, the United States and its allies, including Jordan, have been conducting airstrikes against the Islamic State and other extremist groups in Syria since September 2014 without formal approval from Damascus.
On Tuesday, released a video purporting to show the Jordanian pilot, captured in December, burnt alive. Earlier, the militant group, notorious for its cruelty, offered to exchange the pilot for Sajida Rishawi, sentenced to death for taking part in a suicide bombing that left 60 people killed.
