- Omar Hussain, who would now be 32, worked as a security guard in Morrisons
- He fled to Syria in December 2013, after catching a flight from Gatwick to Turkey
- Security sources say intelligence has emerged that Hussain has died in the war
A notorious British extremist known as the Supermarket Jihadi is believed to have killed himself in a suicide attack in Syria, The Mail on Sunday can reveal.
Omar Hussain took part in a ‘martyrdom operation’ when ISIS was under siege in its then de facto capital Raqqa in northern Syria as the group fought a last-ditch battle against Western-backed Kurdish forces, it is understood.
Security sources have told the MoS that reliable intelligence has emerged that Hussain – who became one of the most high-profile British ISIS jihadis in Syria – has died in the war. One source said that he volunteered for the suicide mission because he realised he could not return to Britain.
Hussain, who would now be 32, used to work as a security guard at his local Morrisons store in High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire, fled to Syria in December 2013, after catching a flight from Gatwick to Turkey.
