The parents of ISIS hostage Abdul-Rahman Kassig are trying once again to contact their son’s captors using Twitter.

This is the third time the Indianapolis couple has reached out to ISIS using social media, asking for mercy.

Abdul-Rahman is Ed and Paula Kassig’s only child. ISIS captured him last year and threatened to kill him if the United States continued airstrikes in Syria.

An ISIS supporter tweeted that the deadline for that to happen was Wednesday. The Kassig family sent a tweet of their own on Thursday, asking ISIS to respond.

They wrote, “Please tell us what more we can do so that Abdul Rahman may continue to serve and live his life in accordance with the teachings of Islam.” 

The Kassigs say ISIS hasn’t responded to any of their tweets.
