Notorious ISIS executioner Jihadi John allegedly lived in fear of dying in a United States airstrike. Last night, those fears may have come true.

British Prime Minister David Cameron on Friday lauded a U.S. drone strike targeting “Jihadi John,” the masked Islamic State executioner who came to symbolize its brutality. But Cameron said there was no certainty that the British extremist was dead.

The Pentagon said the attack was carried out Thursday, and that officials are still working to determine whether the strike killed the London-raised militant, Mohammed Emwazi.

Pentagon press secretary Peter Cook said the strike took place around the Syrian city of Raqqa, which the Islamic State calls its capital.

“We are assessing the results of tonight’s operation and will provide additional information as and where appropriate,” Cook said.

In a statement in front of 10 Downing Street on Friday, Cameron said it was not certain that Emwazi had been killed in an operation that the prime minister described as “a combined effort” between U.S. and British security forces.

“If this strike was successful, and we still await confirmation of that, it will be a strike at the heart of ISIL,” Cameron said, using an acronym for the Islamic State.

Cameron alternated between speaking about Emwazi in the past and the present tenses, describing him as a “barbaric murderer” who was the Islamic State’s “lead executioner.”

If Jihadi John has been killed in an airstrike, the world will be a far better place. Hopefully, he’s enjoying his 72 virgins in Hell.
