THREE British jihadis fighting for ISIS in Libya have been killed in a covert operation by British special forces.
From Daily Express:
Special Boat Service commandos fought the extremists in a gun battle near Serte.
The extremists had seized the town for more than 18 months but were overthrown by the SBS forces.
The British-born men, who were thought to be between 20 and 30 were killed when they and a number of other jihadis attacked the SBS soldiers on June 18.
All three were found with paperwork on them indicating their British nationality – and that they had travelled to Libya via Cairo.
A source told the Mirror: “Everything they had on them was in English. The paperwork clearly indicated that they had flown out of the UK.”
MI5 and MI6 have been given their names and photographs.
Security services claim that up to 500 UK jihadis are fighting abroad with ISIS.
It is thought as many as 20,000 ISIS fighters have been wiped out in Syria and Iraq.
