British ISIS fighter who stood shoulder-to-shoulder with Jihadi John in gruesome execution video has been ‘killed in battle’

The British ISIS fighter who stood alongside Jihadi John in a gruesome video featuring the execution of an American aid worker and 16 Syrian soldiers has reportedly been killed in Syria.

Islamic State’s social media channels have been flooded with the news and chilling tributes to Ikrima al-Nomani who they say died in battle in the western region of Kalamoon.

The tyrant who was among 16 ISIS militants seen beheading soldiers in the Syrian desert has previously been named as Nasser Muthana, a 20-year-old former medical student from Cardiff.
