Filament stuck in hotend

I had a filament jam, and was unable to get it out using the needle. I've tried heating up the hotend and pulling it out with pliers - I was able to get maybe 1cm out, but I'm unable to extract anymore. How can I diagnose this further?

Here are a couple photos to confirm - showing my hotend with a little bit of PLA sticking out of the PFTE tube: image 1, image 2.

I usually find it better to  go hot, and push the filament into the extruder...
