ISIS have confirmed that British jihadist ‘Jihadi John’ has been killed in airstrike in Syria, in a recent issue of their IS’ magazine.
British campaign group Cage claim that Jihadi John, whose real name is Mohammed Emwazi was interrogated by MI5 before its agents tried to recruit him as an informant.
He was reportedly killed in November last year by a US drone strike in Syria.
Jihadi John “finally achieved” what he has “sought for so long” on November 12, 2015, the pamphlet said.
From August 2014, Jihadi John appeared in a series of graphic videos uploaded to YouTube, in which he beheaded his victims. The terrorist, whose real name was Mohammed Emwazi, was responsible for the brutal execution of two British aid workers, David Haines and Alan Henning, among other hostages.

In each of the clips, Jihadi John appeared wearing his signature black robe, with a black balaclava covering his face. In a rare unmasked appearance the infamous butcher also threatened to return to the UK to “cut heads off.”
It is widely believed that Jihadi John was born in Kuwait, and arrived in the UK in 1993. He was the only Muslim student in his class at St. Mary Magdalene Church of England primary school in Maida Vale, West London. He regularly attended a mosque with his parents and five siblings, as well as embracing the British culture of his classmates, according to reports.
The IS publication claimed that Jihadi John had managed to deceive authorities on several occasions and was sneaking across borders freely. Once he was allegedly detained by the UK’s MI5, as he tried to make his way from Britain to Kuwait, but was able to trick the agents by “presenting himself as unintelligent” and got away “right under the nose of the much-overrated MI5 British intelligence agency.”
He was alleged to have been killed in a drone strike in mid-November 2015 in the jihadist Syrian stronghold, Raqqua, shortly after the deadly Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) terror attacks in Paris.
