Abu-Muhammad al-Amriki, ISIS terrorist from America.

An ISIS fighter who goes by the name of Abu Muhammad al-Amriki (the American), was reportedly killed on Sunday, Oct. 12.

Al-Amriki was killed during a battle at the strategically important Syrian border town of Kobane, which has been valiantly defended by the Kurds for several weeks.


The man who lived in the United States for approximately ten years and then left to join jihadis appeared in a video earlier this year.

In that video al-Amriki seems not entirely fluent in English. American authorities have not yet determined whether he was ever formally an American citizen, although his nom de guerre makes clear that is how he self-identified.

In the video, the terrorist seems to be describing some sort of weapons double-crossing as the explanation for why he chose to defect to the ISIS terrorist group from a different Syrian terrorist group, Jabhat al Nusra. See the video at the end of this article.

The U.S.-led coalition against ISIS has been hitting positions in the area for several days, but it seems to be too little, too late, and Kobane is soon expected to fall to the ISIS genocidal death squad.

On Feb. 4, James Clapper, the Director of National Intelligence, told Congress that more than 50 Americans are thought to be waging jihad in Syria, and are among 7,500 foreign fighters in the country. Foreign reports say the number of Americans waging jihad in Syria is substantially higher than 50.

There are many times more Europeans than American who have successfully integrated into the various terrorist groups in the Middle East region.
