Jihad John’s Obituary in ISIS Magazine Praises “Deeds That Attest to His Kindness and Generosity”

The Islamic State (ISIS) confirmed that the masked executioner known as Jihadi John was killed on Nov. 12th 2015 in the latest issue of its Dabiq magazine. Last November, the Pentagon told PPD it was “reasonably certain” that Mohammed Emwazi was killed in a U.S. drone strike in Raqqa, the Islamic State’s capital in Syria.

“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 reads.

Jihad John appeared in the beheading videos of American journalists Jim Foley and Steven Sotloff, as well as Peter Kassig, the aid worker and former Army Ranger. Of course, those are just a few of Jihad John’s victims.

“A side of Abū Muhārib that wasn’t witnessed except by those who knew him was his mercy, kindness, and gener-osity towards the believers, his protective jealousy for Islam and its people, and his affection towards the orphans,” the obituary read. “Of the deeds that attest to his kindness and generosity is that after receiving a sabiyyah (concubine) as a gift he did not hesitate to give her away – likewise as a gift – to an unmar-ried injured brother.”

The Islamic State characterizes Dabiq as “a periodical magazine focusing on the issues oftawhid (unity),manhaj (truth-seeking), hijrah (migration), jihad (holy war) and jama’ah (community). It will also contain photo reports, current events, and informative articles on matters relating to the Islamic State.” Dabiq, the sophisticated periodical publication aimed at recruiting jihadists from the West. is named after a location in Syria that Islamists believe to be the location for one of the final battles against the infidels.
