Two infamous Australian nationals, who have been fighting along the ISIL Takfiri group in Syria and Iraq, have reportedly been killed.
According to reports on Monday, Khaled Sharrouf and Mohamed Elomar were killed last week in the Iraqi city of Mosul, which is under the control of the ISIL terrorist group.
Australian authorities have not confirmed the death of the two terrorists with a spokeswoman for Foreign Minister Julie Bishop saying that Australian intelligence officers are awaiting confirmation of the reports.
Both terrorists left Australia for the territories under the control of the terrorist group in 2013.
Sharrouf had posted a picture on his Twitter account showing his underage son struggling to hold up the severed head of a slain Syrian soldier by his hair. Sharrouf said in the caption of the photo “That’s my boy.”
Australia issued an arrest warrant for Sharrouf, who had served almost four years in prison after pleading guilty over a 2005 conspiracy to carry out an attack in Sydney.
Speaking at Parliament House in Canberra, Bishop said it is difficult to verify the report of the death of the terrorists.
