The Islamic State Media has confirmed that The British IS militant known as "Jihadi John" died in a drone strike in Syria. The terrorist group published what appeared to be an obituary of their executor -Mohammed Emwazi (The real name of Jihadi John) - in its Dabiq magazine, stating that he was killed on 12 November in their Syrian stronghold of Raqqa. This has confirmed the US official’s assumption that they had killed him in the US strike.
27 year old Jihadi John had appeared in a series of brutal IS videos showing the execution of foreign hostages, including those showing the execution of British aid workers Alan Henning and David Haines, American journalist Steven Sotloff and US aid worker Abdul-Rahman Kassig. He was last seen in a video showing the execution of Japanese journalist Kenji Goto in January last year.
