IS confirms death of 'Jihadi John' in Syria drone strike

The death of so-called "Jihadi John" in a drone strike last November has been confirmed by a media outlet associated with Islamic State.

The US military said in November it was "reasonably certain" it had killed him in a drone strike.

ISIS militants confirmed that the most celebrated executioner known as "Jihagi John" is dead.

Emwazi would later claim to the London-based campaign group Cage that while trying to return to Kuwait from Britain, in July 2010, the British authorities blocked him from travelling and put him on a terror watch list.

The statement backs up United States officials who have said they are "99% sure" he was killed in a U.S. strike on a auto. But it was one of the American drones that fired a Hellfire missile that hit the vehicle.

"It's good", Sotloff said, Fox News quoted. Kassig family's spokeswoman Jodi Perras said they had no comment about the news on Emwazi's death.

It described him as an "honourable brother" known for his "mercy and generosity" who once gave away a mistress as a gift "to an unmarried injured brother". In the video footages of ISIS, featuring the beheading, "Jihadi John" usually covers himself from head to toe with a black robe and a black mask, leaving only his eyes visible. He attended state schools in London, then studied computer science at the University of Westminster before leaving for Syria in 2013.

Dabiq also praised other terrorist actions around the globe - including the recent bombing in Bangladesh - and the November 13 attacks in Paris that killed 130 people.

As a British citizen, he personified the concerns of security forces anxious about a resurgence in homegrown radicalism inspired by the hard-line ideology of the Islamic State.

The murderous regime made the chilling threat in the latest edition of its Dabiq propaganda magazine. Distributed online as a.pdf file, it has a professional layout, including photos and graphics, giving it the appearance of a glossy magazine.
