Australian Terror Recruiter Mohammad Ali Baryalei Is So Thunderstruck

He's totally 100% dead Jim!

AUSTRALIA’S most senior ­Islamic State fighter, who allegedly instigated a plot to behead a random member of the public in Sydney’s streets last month, has been killed in a coalition airstrike on the Syrian border town of ­Kobane, his friends have claimed.

Authorities were working last night to verify reports that ­Mohammad Ali Baryalei was “martyred’’ three days ago while fighting with Islamic State, the terror group to which he allegedly recruited scores of young Aus­tralians. The former drug-­abusing Kings Cross bouncer would be the first Australian fighter killed in the US-led bombing campaign that has been striking Islamic State targets inside Syria and Iraq since August.

Two of Baryalei’s Syria-based friends, who were fellow alumni of the Sydney “Street Dawah” group he led, told The Australian the one-time bit-part actor was killed in an airstrike at least three days ago in Kobane.

Mohamed Zuhbi and Abdul Salam Mahmoud, who have been undertaking humanitarian work focused on the Syrian port city of Lattakia, outside Islamic State’s caliphate, said the reports of Bary­alei’s demise were true.

“It was an airstrike, not sure by whom,” Mr Zuhbi said in an ­online interview with The Aus­tralian. “I personally received news from a brother who was with him for the most part of his journey so I believe it is true.”

See that's him right there! The one running for his life.... and losing.

You're welcome Australia, it was nothing.
