Jihadi John was a British–Arab terrorist belonging to the group ‘Islamic State’ (also known as ‘ISIS,’ or ‘ISIL’). He was believed to be involved in several beheading videos released by the ‘ISIL.’ He was born in Kuwait and was the eldest of the five children in the family. His family moved to London when he was 6. He was thus raised there. He grew up as a normal young teenager who had many friends, was good in academics, and had embraced the Western culture. However, there is sufficient evidence to safely say that he gradually became more religious as he grew up. He graduated from the ‘University of Westminster’ and moved to Kuwait to work in an IT company. Following his graduation, he planned a trip to Tanzania, but due to his Islamic identity, he was detained, questioned, and sent back. In Holland and the U.K., he was questioned multiple times about his assumed links with various terrorist groups. John somehow made his way to Syria and joined the ‘ISIL.’ He was then seen wearing a mask in many videos featuring the beheadings of Western journalists and aid workers. He was killed in a U.S. drone strike in November 2015.
