“Jihadi John” Wounded in US Airstrike

“Jihadi John” Wounded in US Airstrike

Murderer of four western hostages rushed to hospital after ambush.

Reports have surfaced that “Jihadi John,” the masked Brit responsible for the beheadings of four western hostages, was injured last Saturday’s airstrikes near the Iraqi-Syrian border.

Via the Daily Mail:

‘We are aware of reports that this individual [Jihadi John] has been injured, and we are looking into them,’ a Foreign Office spokesman told The Mail on Sunday.

This newspaper has received an independent account of how Jihadi John was injured and rushed to hospital after a devastating air strike in Al Qaim, in Anbar Province, Western Iraq.

The Foreign Office spokesman added: ‘We have a number of sources of information coming in.

‘The incident occurred last weekend, and so we have received the reports in the last few days. We don’t have any representation inside Syria, and so it is difficult to confirm these reports.’

The Foreign Office also issued an official statement saying: ‘We are aware of reports. We cannot confirm these reports.’ A spokesman for US Central Command said they were unable to confirm the details for security reasons.

The joint US-Iraqi mission left at least ten IS commanders dead, and around 40 injured.

Those reportedly hurt included IS leader Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi.

The Mail provides a great infographic detailing the fractured timeline as we have it so far:

Tribal leaders from around the region had gathered in a bunker near the border to pledge their allegiance to ISIS leader Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi. The Foreign Office is reporting that at least ten ISIS leaders were killed and another 40 injured in the airstrike.

Pity.

That they may have just winged him, that is.

The stores just had a run on the tiniest violins in the world.

Good job US…next time don’t miss!

The bombs may not have taken him out, but Obama said his actions were ‘unacceptable’ and that he ‘is not Islam’ but is ‘on the wrong side of history,’ so I’m sure it’s taken the fight out of him.

Hey, it worked on Putin, didn’t it?
