SAS ordered to bring back Jihadi John ALIVE to face justice in England
Jihadi John is wanted alive by security services – so that
the Islamic State fanatic can face justice in Britain.
They reckon they have their best chance to seize him as
the brute is sidelined by IS chiefs fearful his high profile
has led to drone attacks by the West.
The executioner – unmasked this year as Brit Mohammed
Emwazi – is said to be “disillusioned” while being moved
across territories controlled by the terror group.
Security chiefs are determined to seize him so he can be
grilled for information on the murderous group and
brought to trial for beheading hostages including Brits
David Haines and Alan Henning.
suggests Emwazi has become a disparate figure who has
no real operational role in IS, and its leaders are
constantly having to move him around away from
important and strategic sites.
“We sense that this is a real opportunity now to capture
Emwazi while he is in transit.”
Jihadi John identified as a Briton named Mohammed
The source, who did not want to be identified, said
Emwazi had made contact with other jihadi forces in Syria
who are opposed to IS.
“He appears to be a desperate man who knows his days
are numbered and is doing all he can to save himself,” the
may even be trying to make his way into Somalia to join
up with al-Qaeda affiliate Al Shabab. It wouldn’t be
surprising as we know he made efforts to travel to
Somalia some years ago, which first brought him to the
attention of the authorities.”
Emwazi, 27, from Queen’s Park, North West London, has
not been put on the latest UN terror sanctions list –
suggesting a new approach to snare him is being adopted
by the West.
David Cameron has already hinted there is a growing
desire to capture Emwazi alive.
The source added: “We believe we can use his
desperation and apparent growing disenchantment to
track his movements and capture him while he’s in
transit. It can also be used as leverage to interrogate him.
