Jihadi John Believed Killed in US Drone Strike US Officials Say
The ISIS terrorist dubbed “Jihadi John”, who oversaw the brutal executions of American and Western hostages, was hit by a U.S. airstrike Thursday night and is believed to have killed, U.S. officials told ABC News.
One official said the Jihadist, Mohammed Emwazi, was thought to hit as he left a building in Raqqa, Syria, and entered a vehicle. The official called it a “flawless” and “clean hit” with no collateral damage and that Emwazi basically “evaporated.”
“U.S. forces conducted an airstrike in Raqqa, Syria, on Nov. 12, 2015, targeting Mohamed Emwazi, also known as ‘Jihadi John,'” Pentagon Press Secretary Peter Cook said.
“Emwazi, a British citizen, participated in the videos showing the murders of U.S. journalists Steven Sotloff and James Foley, U.S. aid worker Abdul-Rahman Kassig, British aid workers David Haines and Alan Henning, Japanese journalist Kenji Goto, and some other hostages,” Cook said. “We are assessing the results of tonight’s operation and will provide additional information as and where appropriate.”
Diane Foley, the mother of Emwazi’s first victim James Foley, told ABC News Emwazi’s potential death would be “really a small solace to us.”
