As Jihadi John was sitting in his vehicle on Thursday night, he couldn't have expected the life-altering event that would follow.
John, who is known for brutally beheading James Foley, Steven Sotloff, Peter Kassig, and several other citizens from various countries, was spotted by an American drone and its hellfire missile may have been the last thing he ever laid eyes on.
U.S. officials believe the sadistic terrorist beheader and propagandist is dead. Confirmation is forthcoming.
The drone strike reportedly took place in Raqqa, Syria:
ABC News reports that:
The ISIS terrorist dubbed “Jihadi John”, who oversaw the brutal executions of American and Western hostages, was hit by a U.S. air strike Thursday night and is believed to have been killed, U.S. officials told ABC News.
One official said the jihadist, Mohammed Emwazi, was thought to be 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.
Prior to the strike, John, who was something of a hero to terrorists, was thought to be in hiding because his real identity had been revealed, and he feared for his life.
According to Reuters, the Pentagon is still trying to determine how effective the operation was.
John is the most wanted terrorist in the world. If reports of his death are confirmed, he's now just vapor, courtesy of the United States military.
