ISIS confirmed that a U.S. airstrike last year killed infamous executor “Jihadi John” in Syria.

In the latest issue of its Dabiq magazine, ISIS said Mohammed Emwazi, a British national, was killed in a drone strike, ABC News reports. 

“The car he was in was targeted in a strike by an unmanned drone in the city of ar-Raqqah, destroying the car and killing him instantly,” an article on page 23 of the magazine said.

U.S. officials said in November that “Jihadi John” was killed in a “flawless” airstrike.

“He walked out of a building and got in the car. We struck it right after with zero collateral damage,” a counter-terrorism official told ABC News on Nov. 12. “The vehicle was on fire. It was a 100 percent flawless, direct hit.”

The ISIS magazine provided the first confirmation from ISIS that “Jihadi John” was killed.
