Islamic state media outlet confirms “Jihadi John” is dead

An Islamic State media associate on Tuesday released an eulogy for Mohammed Emwazi also known as “Jihadi John,”(famous for the execution of hostages).

Emwazi was described in Islamic State’s Dabiq magazine by his nickname “Abu Muharib al-Muhajir.”

    “On Thursday, the 29th of Muharram, 1437 (Nov. 12, 2015), Ab Muhrib finally achieved shahdah (martyrdom) for the cause of Allah, which he had sought for so long, as the car he was in was targeted in a strike by an unmanned drone in the city of Raqqah, destroying the car and killing him instantly,” Dabiq said.
