It seems Karma caught up with them.

Mass. Man on FBI's Most Wanted Terror List Killed in Syria (bumped)
Ahmad Abousamra, a co-conspirator of Tarek Mehanna, is dead. Dead, dead, dead!
The Iraqis released his name as Abu Samra:
The Interior Ministry announced the killing of the ISIS film-making expert, known as Abu Samra, during an air strike on ISIS targets in western Anbar.I wondered if it might be Ahmad Abousamra, who was indicted in federal court but who was thought to be in Syria with ISIS's propaganda wing. According to the Daily Mail, it's him.
The ministry said in a press statement followed by IraqiNews.com, “The Falcon Intelligence Cell of the Interior Ministry’s Intelligence Service has confirmed the killing of the ISIS film-making expert, known as Abu Samra,” noting that, “Abu Mohammed al-Souri, known as Abu Samra and who is an American national, was killed during an air raid against ISIS in western Anbar,”
----UPDATE: When I first posted, the Daily Mail had a blank placeholder post announcing Abousamra's death which told me that they knew his identity but had not yet finished writing the story. But now the story is written, and I thought I'd post just a bit linking Abousamra not only to Tarek Mehanna, but also to the two Boston bombers:
Abousamra had attended the same notorious mosque as the Boston bombers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan Tsarnaev, as well as other convicted terrorists.Back to the original post ----
'Abousamra's father, a prominent doctor, even sat on the board of directors of the Muslim organization that runs the [Islamic Society of Boston] mosque. He stepped down after the FBI began questioning his son,' Sperry said.
'As mosque president, internal documents show, Dr. Abousamra hired Hafiz Masood, brother of a known Pakistani terrorist, to be the imam of a mosque in Sharon, Mass., which his son also attended,' the article added.
Just a reminder that his buddy Tarek Mehanna, now in federal prison, claims he was just exercising his First Amendment rights when he translated materials on behalf of al Qaeda in Iraq -- the group that would later transform itself into ISIS.
There's even a Free Tarek Mehanna group on the interwebz. Because, you know, innocent.
Abousamra is now enjoying the pineapple treatment instead of the 72 virgins he was expecting. He will not be missed.

ISIS Are Slow Learners
Remember back in January when ISIS threatened We will reach America and threatened to behead President Obama?
SIS threatened to behead President Obama inside the White House before spreading Shariah law across the U.S. Monday in a new propaganda video, according to reports. The Islamic terrorist organization also threatened other world leaders in a move that some suggest is retaliation for Kurdish forces seizing the Syrian border town of Kobane earlier that day.So their little threat earned them some very special visitors from the US.
The video, which is titled "Bombardment of Peaceful Muslim in the City of Mosul," shows the destruction of the Iraqi city from mortar shells. Later on is a graphic decapitation of an enemy soldier by an ISIS terrorist.
One of the insurgents said during the video that Islamic state forces will eventually reach the U.S. and kill President Barack Obama. He also threatened President Masoud Barzani of the Kurdistan Regional Government as well as the people of France and Belgium.
"This is the fate of anyone who opposes Islam," the man said. "Know, oh Obama, that we will reach America. Know also that we will cut off your head in the White House and transform America into a Muslim province."
U.S. Special Forces Just Took Out A Top ISIS Leader – And Captured His Sex Slavery-Condoning Wife...So what has ISIS learned from this?
While airstrikes continue to hammer ISIS positions, it turns out that that’s not the only thing the jihadists need to worry about.
U.S. Special Forces appear to be doing more than just training ‘rebels,’ they’re now engaging the enemy. And, they just put down a top Islamic State leader: Abu Sayyaf.
USA Today reported further on the operation, which will be hurting the terrorists’ bankroll and morale:U.S. Special Operations forces carried out a major raid deep inside eastern Syria, killing a senior Islamic State leader who oversees illicit oil production and capturing his wife, Secretary of Defense Ashton Carter said Saturday.
Carter said Abu Sayyaf, also known as Mohammed Shalabi, “was killed during the course of the operation when he engaged U.S. forces.
ISIS militants issued a harrowing threat against President Barack Obama and the U.S., following a raid on an ISIS compound over the weekend that took out the organization’s chief financial operative Abu Sayyaf.Well it looks like we're going to have to reemphasize this lesson due to ISIS' mental challenges. Nice of them to add the extra genocidal threat against Christians there, nice Religion of Tolerance they have there isn't it?“If your goal is killing Abu Sayyaf then our goal is killing Obama and the worshipers of the cross. We have attacks coming against you.”
I wouldn't worry too much about Ramadi. Maybe we took advantage of their preoccupation with ruling another sh*thole to make a special delivery.
BONUS! Muslima captured
Abu Sayyaf, who was killed by U.S. Special Operations Forces, helped direct ISIS's illicit oil, gas and financial operations, which are "a key source of revenue that enables the terrorist organization to carry out their brutal tactics and oppress thousands of innocent civilians," the White House National Security Council spokeswoman Bernadette Meehan said in a statement.All your bitches are belong to US.
He was a Tunisian citizen whose wife, Umm Sayyaf, is also considered to be an ISIS operative. Special Operations Forces took Umm into custody after killing Abu Sayyaf and 12 enemy fighters at his compound.

Fat Bastard Adam Gadahn Killed in US Drone Strike
Al-Qaeda leader Ahmed Farouq, who was an American citizen, was also killed in the operation that killed the two innocent hostages.Our thoughts go out to the families of the innocent hostages.
Adam Gadahn, another American who joined al-Qaeda, was also killed by U.S. forces in the region, "likely in a separate" counterterrorism operation, Earnest said in the statement.
American officials at the time had "no reason to believe either hostage was present" when the raid was launched on a compound in the Afghanistan-Pakistan border region.
One of the hostages killed in the operation was Warren Weinstein, an American held hostage by al Qaeda since 2011. The other hostage, Giovanni Lo Porto, was Italian and had been held by al-Qaeda since 2012.
We last saw Adam in an al-Qaeda propaganda video in November 2014.
But if Adam Gadhan is dead, this is the time at Jawa Report when we dance.
He's dead Jim!
When it comes to the Cyber Jihad the damage Adam did was immeasurable, you might consider him the founder of the Online Jihad in English. He basically was as-Sahab Media in English. Good riddance.
f Osama bin Laden was the founding force behind Al Qaeda, then Adam Gadahn was perhaps its leading American voice.
“Because Gadahn was a spokesman and not an operational planner, his death will have little practical bearing on Al Qaeda’s terrorist operations,” said an assessment issued on Thursday by Stratfor, a geopolitical risk analysis company. “However, it is quite telling that As Sahab media has been uncharacteristically silent in 2015.”

Report Caliph Ibrahim Has a Very Bad Day
The leader of Islamic State, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, has been seriously wounded in an air strike in western Iraq, sources have told the Guardian.
A source in Iraq with connections to the terror group revealed that Baghdadi suffered serious injuries during an attack by the US-led coalition in March. The source said Baghdadi’s wounds were at first life-threatening, but he has since made a slow recovery. He has not, however, resumed day-to-day control of the organisation.
Baghdadi’s wounding led to urgent meetings of Isis leaders, who initially believed he would die and made plans to name a new leader.

Zawahiri's Failure is Complete
Sources within Ahrar al-Sham stated that their allies in Jabhat al-Nusra have told them that AQ leader Ayman al-Zawahiri will relinquish his authority – or what left of it – over AQ branches globally and absolve them of their allegiance to him. The move was in response to the rising power of Islamic State in Iraq, Syria, Egypt, Libya and Nigeria as well as new IS incursion into Yemen. AQ and Zawahiri can no longer offer any meaningful leadership...

Drones So Effective al-Qaeda Wanted to Leave Pakistan
CIA efforts to spy on the group and kill its leaders were so effective that in June 2010 an al Qaeda official urged bin Laden, "You should have fewer exchanges of correspondence with us during this period. Make the period between contacts longer and further apart. Take excessive caution and care, especially this year."Which al-Qaeda's narrative is true in their minds, only Muslims can be innocent, thus al-Qaeda see's themselves as innocent.
This was wise counsel. Within a few weeks of this letter being written, the CIA would track bin Laden's trusted courier to his longtime hideout in Abbottabad, Pakistan, and on May 1, 2011, a U.S. Navy SEAL operation ordered by President Barack Obama killed al Qaeda's leader.

Cornhole Watch Fouad Belkacem aka Abu Imran of Sharia4Belgium
Fouad gets 12 years.
he leader of a Belgian group that's accused of recruiting locals to fight for the Islamic State group has been sentenced to 12 years in jail. The judge of a court in Antwerp reportedly said in his ruling Wednesday that it was clear that Sharia4Belgium was a “terrorist organization.”You know who should be there with him?
Fouad Belkacem, the alleged leader of "Sharia4Belgium," which sent would-be jihadists to the Middle East, was tried alongside 45 others in a case that is the largest of its kind in Belgium, the BBC reported. Prosecutors have accused the group of providing recruits for groups like ISIS, as the European nation remains on high alert following the discovery of a plot in January to kill local police officers across the country. Two shooters were killed in a series of raids in that operation.
"Belkacem's words can only be interpreted as a call to violence and jihad," public prosecutor Ann Fransen argued in the trial, listing a long line of speeches and videos in which the 32-year-old group leader compared military jihad to praying and fasting, Reuters reported.

Anjem's group Sharia4UK is closely connected to all the Sharia4 groups including Sharia4Belgium.

Former Gitmo Resident Mullah Abdul Rauf (Abu Whatever Khadim) Droned
He was a Taliban commander captured by the United States and held at Guantanamo Bay. But he was let go and returned to Afghanistan. Mullah Abdul Rauf went on to become a recruiter for ISIS in Afghanistan.Mullah Abdul Rauf's group had recently been the center of a spat between the Taliban and IS fighters attempting to bring the Taliban under IS control. The Taliban didn't like it much.
He was killed in a drone strike Monday, two officials told CNN.
Rauf and five others were killed, four of them Pakistani militants, said Mohammed Jan Rasoulya, the deputy governor of southern Helmand province. A senior Afghan security source confirmed Rauf's death.
The Washington Post, in a headline last month, called him "the shadowy figure recruiting for the Islamic State in Afghanistan."
His name is Mullah Abdul Rauf, Afghan officials told the Associated Press on Monday. He is believed to operating in Helmand province, where coalition troops withdrew in October, according to a tribal leader in Sangin district.
“People are saying that he has raised black flags and even has tried to bring down white Taliban flags in some areas,” the tribal leader, Saifullah Sanginwal, told the AP. “There are reports that 19 or 20 people have been killed” in fighting between the Taliban and the Islamic State group, he added. Those reports have not been confirmed by Afghan authorities.
He's dead Jim!

The Blessed Droning of al-Harith bin-Ghazi al-Nadhari
A prominent cleric in the Al-Qaida in Yemen organization was among those killed in a drone strike this weekend, the group says. Sheik Harith al-Nadhari was among those who praised the recent attack on French magazine Charlie Hebdo.From the AP:"A statement posted Thursday on a Twitter account run by the group said Sheik Harith al-Nadhari was among those killed in the Jan. 31 strike. Al-Nadhari was among the group's few public faces and recently appeared in an al-Qaida video praising last month's deadly attack by militants at the offices of a satirical French magazine."
Dear AQAP we don't forget our friends. Viva Lafayette!
From what I understand there was nothing left of him and his three pals but a greasy spot. I had their names in some window here.
AQAP named the three others as Said Bafaraj, Abdelsamie al-Haddaa and Azzam al-Hadrami.

Everyone Wave Buh Bye to Zombie Abu Daigham al Baritani
A British jihadist who spent six months in Syria and faked his death in an attempt to return to the UK undetected has admitted four terrorism offences.More from Capital Bay.
Imran Khawaja, from Hounslow, west London, posed with a severed head before trying to re-enter the UK.
The 27-year-old admitted preparing for acts of terrorism, attending a camp, receiving training and possessing firearms in a hearing last year.
Legal restrictions have been lifted to allow reporting of his guilty pleas.
The court heard how, by June last year, Bhatti had convinced his cousin to return to the UK saying his parents were not well and that he should come home.Vice News has a collection of images from the group that Imran Khawaja was part of. They are a particularly nasty group. Connected to the usual UK terrorist crowd.
The taxi driver then transported Khawaja back to his home country, avoiding the well-worn jihadist route of flights to and from Turkey.
That day, Khawaja was reported as being killed but he and Bhatti - who was referred to in a coded message as 'butterbean' - were arrested by specialist counter-terrorism officers.
He plotted his escape from the war-torn country by asking his cousin Tahir Bhatti, 45 (above) to drive to Bulgaria to drive him back to the UK
Mr Dawson told Westminster Magistrates' Court: 'We say he went out to Syria at the end of January, he flew out on 26 January.
'He has a nom-de-guerre of Abu Daigham al-Britani. The Crown say he is a senior member of a terrorist group, Rayat Al Taweed.
'We say he is a senior member of that group because that group publishes media on things like Facebook and within that media are videos of members of that group in a training camp for example, driving in a convoy in military vehicles with anti-aircraft weapons and heavy machine-guns.
'There is one video demonstrating the finding of severed heads on the battlefield and decapitated heads.
'We say Mr Khawaja is Abu Daigham al-Britani and has appeared in many of those videos.'
Abu Daigham al-Britani instead of staying in IS and achieving martyrdom and collecting on his 72 virgins will likely spend the rest of his life in UK prison, with hairy bearded men. All because he missed his mummy.
Justice, its a bitch.

Abu Hamza al-Masri To Spend His Life Chatting With Zack Chesser Through Prison Poop Pipe
Life is cruel, oh so cruel.
Abu Hamza was tonight jailed for life with no chance of parole by a New York judge who branded him ‘evil’.
The hate cleric nodded his head and pursed his lips as Judge Katherine Forrest told him he was ‘barbaric’ because he had showed no remorse or sympathy to his victims.
Judge Forrest said that a life sentence was the only option as she could never conceive of a time when he would not be a danger to the public - even 20 years from now.

Islamic State of Losers Lose Again
Is it just me of is ISIS making a habit of getting its ass kicked lately?Schweet!
BAGHDAD — Kurdish forces, backed by a surge of American airstrikes in recent days, recaptured a large swath of territory from Islamic State militants on Thursday, opening a path from the autonomous Kurdish region to Mount Sinjar in the west, near the Syrian border.Its always nice to start off with a feel good story, don't you think?
The two-day offensive, which involved 8,000 fighters, known as pesh merga, was the largest one to date in the war against the Islamic State, also known as ISIS and ISIL, according to Kurdish officials. It was also a successful demonstration of President Obama’s strategy for battling the extremist group: American air power combined with local forces doing the fighting on the ground.
A statement released Thursday night by the office of Masrour Barzani, the head of the Kurdistan Regional Security Council, called the operation “the single biggest military offensive against ISIS, and the most successful.”

French Pay for Hostage
But then, once MUJWA had given up its last French hostage, the French took their refund strait out of Ahmed al Tilemsi's ass.
French forces in northern Mali have killed a senior commander of the al Mourabitoun Islamist group who was wanted by the United States, a defense ministry spokesman said on Thursday. The United States has offered a $5 million reward for information leading to the arrest of Ahmed al Tilemsi, who took part in the 2011 kidnapping of two French nationals in Niger and of three aid workers in Algeria later that year. Al Tilemsi was a founding member of the Movement for Unity and Jihad in West Africa (MUJWA), which merged with fighters loyal to veteran Islamist leader Mokhtar Belmokhtar to form al Mourabitoun last year.Neutralized means dead, well played France, well played.
"Last night, we launched an operation in the Gao region in coordination with Malian forces," Colonel Gilles Jarron told reporters in Paris. He added that Tilesmi had been killed and a dozen other Islamists "neutralized," but did not specify if that meant killed or arrested.
Ahmed el Tilemsi is a founding member and military head of the terrorist group Movement for Unity and Jihad in West Africa (MUJWA, also known as MUJAO and TWJWA). Prior to his leadership role in MUJWA, Tilemsi was a member of al-Qaida in the Lands of the Islamic Maghreb (AQIM), where he played a role in the January 2011 kidnapping of two French nationals in Niamey, Niger. In October 2011, Tilemsi participated in the kidnapping of three aid workers in Algeria, which left two wounded by gunfire. Tilemsi was designated a terrorist pursuant to Executive Order 13224 on December 7, 2012.
MUJWA was created in September 2011 as an offshoot of al-Qaida in the Lands of the Islamic Maghreb (AQIM) to further spread terrorist activities throughout West Africa. MUJWA has conducted various attacks and kidnappings, including a March 2012 suicide attack in Tamanrasset, Algeria, which wounded 23 people. The United States designated MUJWA as a Specially Designated Global Terrorist entity on December 7, 2012, and the UN al-Qaida Sanctions Committee listed MUJWA on December 5, 2012, for being associated with AQIM.

US Targets IS in Raqqa With Impunity
A wave of US-led air strikes have struck at least 30 targets around the Syrian city of Raqa, the self-proclaimed capital of the Islamic State group, a monitor said Sunday.Last week IS taunted the US when it took down a US RQ-180 drone. Would you care to taunt us a second time?
The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said the strikes took place before midnight Saturday and hit 30 targets on the northern outskirts of Raqa.
They also hit Division 17, a Syrian army base the jihadist group captured earlier this year.
Update: Sorry the reports last week were of an Iranian drone with a pusher prop similar to an RQ-180. An RQ-180 was lost last week in Afghanistan with competing claims of mechanical failure and the Taliban claiming a shootdown.
Regardless loss of older drones is not a significant accomplishment as ISIS claims. They are built and designed with losses in mind.

US Strikes Kill 100 ISIS Leaders and Soldiers in Airstrikes Near Mosul and al-Qaim
So like airstrikes have no effect. But they do work very well on ISIS parades! LOL.
(Reuters) - U.S. air strikes destroyed an Islamic State convoy near the Iraqi city of Mosul but U.S. officials said on Saturday it was unclear whether the group's top commander Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi had been in any of the 10 targeted vehicles.50 down 50 more to go.Also Friday, U.S. warplanes struck several targets in Iraq’s western Anbar province, Ryder said. The strikes, near al-Qaim at the Syrian border, destroyed an Islamic State vehicle and several checkpoints, he said.
Colonel Patrick Ryder, a Central Command spokesman, said the U.S. military had reason to believe that the convoy was carrying leaders of Islamic State, an al Qaeda offshoot which controls large chunks of Iraq and Syria.
The convoy consisted of 10 Islamic State armed trucks.
"I can confirm that coalition aircraft did conduct a series of air strikes yesterday evening in Iraq against what was assessed to be a gathering of ISIL leaders near Mosul," said Ryder, using another name for Islamic State.
"We cannot confirm if ISIL leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi was among those present."
A Mosul morgue official said 50 bodies of Islamic State militants were brought to the facility after the air strike.
On Saturday, Iraqi government officials and tribal chiefs in Anbar reported fresh U.S. airstrikes near al-Qaim that they said also targeted and killed some of Baghdadi’s top aides. The raids could not be confirmed.Chatter on social media tends to confirm the strikes hit the intended targets.
With faux outrage over civilians and reports of martyrs circulating. There is also indications that possibly there is a communications blackout possibly by ISIS or a cyber move as some reports are coming back "suspended" on twitter in minutes.
We'll find out as the fog clears but it appears to have been a very bad day for ISIS. So lets dance!

Imperial Good News: Abu Abdullah al-Britani Dies in US Airstrike
Chalk up another win for the good guys. Recently, a British man who joined the Islamic State and often bragged about beheading Americans was reportedly killed on the ground inside Syria, according to Shiraz Maher of the International Centre for the Study of Radicalisation and Political Violence.Just keep talking sh*t ISIS just keep talking.
In the linked video William Hasmo Clinic's(on left) pal mocked US forces,
Saying to "bring them"
Well we brought them. LOL
A misguided young man by the name of William Hasmo Clinic who decided to convert to radical Islam and of course renamed himself Abu Abdullah al-Britani, was seen many times in online videos enthusiastically speaking about the death of of the West and how the Islamic state will “take their weaponry as booty and these people will die. You cannot come into Iraq and think that you will take it. No way. We are willing to lay down our blood on this soil.”
Al-Bratani did, in fact, lay down his blood on their soil, as he was killed while fighting for the women’s repression, statism, and senseless violence that is radical Islam.

Red on Red Jabhat al-Nusra vs ISIS Deir el-Zour
he fighting has escalated between Jabhat al-Nusra, the Islamic Front and their allies on the one hand, and the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham (ISIS) on the other, as it reached an unprecedented climax in the past few days, both in terms of expansion and violence.ISIS for its part is accusing anyone who fights against them as being FSA or in bed with their enemies.
he battlefields expanded from the countryside of Hassakeh, to the countryside of Deir el-Zour and Maadan, which is between Raqqa and Deir el-Zour. They also covered the town of Jarablos, in the countryside of Aleppo, and the countryside of Latakia. Many killings, assassinations, suicide bombings, executions and mutilations took place during the battles, during which the injured sometimes bled to death without being treated.
One of the probable reasons behind that is that Jabhat al-Nusra has changed its view on the legitimacy of the fighting. While it once considered this fighting a form of “sedition” that must be halted and that it shouldn’t join, after ISIS attacked and gained control of its headquarters and positions in Deir el-Zour last week, Jabhat al-Nusra issued an intense speech that was more a declaration of war. Jabhat al-Nusra was not expected to stand idly by while the fighting reached the city of Deir el-Zour, which the organization considers its capital, particularly after its losses in Raqqa, Hassakeh, and Aleppo. If Deir el-Zour is lost, nothing else would be left for Jabhat al-Nusra.
Jabhat al-Nusra has succeeded in regaining control over all its headquarters and positions which were seized by ISIS last week, most importantly the Koniko oil field. It also took control over the al-Jafra field, and the industrial area. Following the counteroffensive launched by Jabhat al-Nusra, the Islamic Front and some of the Free Syrian Army’s factions, ISIS was forced to withdraw all of its members from the countryside of Deir el-Zour and regroup in al-Shaddadi city in the countryside of Hassakeh. Local sources said that ISIS no longer has any presence in the countryside of Deir el-Zour, except for the salt mine in al-Tabani town, where its members are under siege.
The hash for Deir el-Zour for becoming very active with reports of fighting and murders.

Australian Terror Recruiter Mohammad Ali Baryalei Is So Thunderstruck
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.See that's him right there! The one running for his life.... and losing.
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.”
You're welcome Australia, it was nothing.

ISIS' Boasting That Airstrikes Will Have No Affect on Them Wrong Dead Wrong
The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights says 464 IS fighters, 57 other militants and 32 civilians have died.That a pretty good rate of kill the enemy with a very low rate of collateral damage. Although its pretty easy to pick off ISIS engaging Kobane in a siege, this dispels the myth that the US intentionally targets innocent Muslims. To the contrary we love to support innocent Muslims, but the terrorists, you know, needed killing.
Meanwhile, fierce fighting resumed in the town of Kobane, where militants and Kurdish forces battling for control.
Kurdish sources told BBC Arabic that IS had retaken a strategically important hilltop 4km west of the town.
Kurdish forces fighting IS in Kobane took Tal Shair nine days ago.
Reports also suggest IS fighters have been shelling Kurdish positions and attacking the town centre.
Syrian Kurdish sources told the BBC that IS fighters launched intensive attacks on Wednesday night from the southern and eastern parts of the town, in an apparent attempt to get access to the town centre.
The fighting resumed on Thursday morning after a brief period of calm, the sources added.

Islamic State of Losers Run From Kobani!
Islamic State fighters have been driven out of Kobani, the Kurdish town that straddles the Syrian-Turkish border, after weeks of heavy fighting, according to Kurdish sources speaking to RT.
A Kurdish commander said that ISIS retreated overnight – withdrawing by 2 km east and 9 km west.
The Kurds are now clearing the city. The Islamists have left behind suicide bombers hiding in the ruins of the various buildings in the city.
"We can still hear sporadic gunfire and explosions coming from Kobani," RT's Murad Gazdiev reports from the Turkish-Syrian border.
However, a victory announcement from the Kurdish fighters is yet to be made because the whole of the city has not been secured.

Everyone Wave Buh Bye to Abu Imran
Belgium sends Abu Imran aka Fouad Belkacem of Sharia4Belgium prisonn for 15 Years.
Our beloved brother Abou Imran (the leader of Shariah4Belgium), was sentenced to live in prison for 15 years more. Keep him in your Ad'iyaa.— Umm Hudayfah (@BintMansour_) September 30, 2014
radical Muslim organization in Belgium was a well-structured terror group that brainwashed youngsters and sent them to fight in Syria, prosecutors said Monday as a trial started for dozens of suspects.Previous Jawa Report Coverage:
Eight of the 46 suspects of the Sharia4Belgium group were present for the trial's opening. Many others are believed to be fighting in Syria or to have died in the country's civil war.
The group's alleged leader Fouad Belkacem, who is in custody, was led into court by armed guards. He listened in silence to prosecutor Ann Fransen as she said that leading a terror organization carries a maximum sentence of 15 to 20 years.
The case, one of the biggest-ever terror trials in Belgium, centers on Sharia4Belgium and its efforts to indoctrinate young Muslims through social media and readings, and then send them to Syria to fight.

What A Wonderful Problem!
There's a huge argument over just who killed Boko Haram leader Shekau.
f the ongoing report from the troubled Northeast Nigeria is anything to go by, then a prominent Boko Haram Commander suspected to be the sect’s leader, Abubakar Shekau might have been killed.
However, one report that appears conflicting is whether the alleged victory was actually won by the Nigerian Army or the Cameroonian soldiers.
While troops from Cameroon on Sunday night claimed responsibility for killing Shekau with photos of the Boko Haram leader’s corpse as one of the proofs, the Nigerian Army has equally claimed that its troops killed the sect leader. The report from the side of the Nigerian troops was however not supported by images.
Well there's one Shaheed that's not smiling in his death photo. That's what happens when the Kuffar capture your dead body, there's no one to pose the stiff's smile and pointy finger.

Unfortunate? Update: Al Shabaab Leader Ahmed Abdi Godane Confirmed Dead!
I don't think that word means what the think it means.
Unfortunately Emir Godane sustained injury.— HSM Press Office (@HSM_press01) September 2, 2014
Update 09/05/2014: Emir Godane has been droned, a confirmed kill.
Reuters) - The Pentagon confirmed on Friday that Ahmed Abdi Godane, a leader of the al Shabaab Islamist group, was killed in a U.S. airstrike in Somalia this week, calling it a "major symbolic and operational loss" for the al Qaeda-affiliated militants.As you might recall, it was Godane who had American Jihadi Omar Hammami murdered for speaking out against Godane acting in his own interest as a warlord rather than in the interest of Muslims or Islam.
"We have confirmed that Ahmed Godane, the co-founder of al Shabaab, has been killed," Rear Admiral John Kirby, the Pentagon's press secretary, said in a statement.
Since taking charge of al Shabaab in 2008, Godane had restyled the group as a global player in the al Qaeda network, carrying out bombings and suicide attacks in Somalia and elsewhere in the region, including the Sept. 21, 2013, attack on the Westgate shopping mall in Nairobi, Kenya, that killed 67 people.
Godane publicly claimed responsibility for the Westgate attack, saying it was revenge for Kenyan and Western involvement in Somalia and noting its proximity to the anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks on the United States.
His death leaves a gap in al Shabaab's leadership and was seen as posing the biggest challenge to the group's unity since it emerged as a fighting force eight years ago.
Hammami was just American enough to call out Godane and paid the ultimate price for it.
Hammami was a fave Jihadi of mine, we may have been on different sides but I admired him for daring to speak against injustice in al-Shabaab as he saw it.
We'd tried to talk Omar into turning himself in several times, he refused and accepted his fate destiny as a Mujahideen even as al-Shabaab sought to murder him. The fate of Omar Hammami's Somali wife and children is still unknown.
Today Omar Hammami is avenged. He might have been a Muj but he was OUR MUJ and his children have an American birthright.
May Godane rot in hell.

Imperial Good News! Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi's Right Hand Man Dead as a Rock
Three senior members of ISIS - including the right hand man of its leader - have been killed in a US airstrike in northern Iraq, according to senior security officials.More on ISIS leadership here and the chart from the above image here.
Damaging blow: A key aide of Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi has been killed by a US airstrike over Mosul, northern Iraq according to security sources.
Two days after video showing the execution of Steven Sotloff was released, US warplanes struck a damaging blow at the heart of ISIS in Mosul, killing Abu Hajar Al-Sufi, who is an aide to its chief, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.
And at the NATO summit in Wales this afternoon, Secretary of State John Kerry was seen to quietly pass President Obama a note during an address by British Prime Minister David Cameron, after which members of the press were cleared from the conference hall.
While it has not been confirmed if Obama learned of Al-Sufi's death through Kerry's note, the president was noticeably absent for the beginning of a meeting of the NATO-Ukraine commission in the early evening at the summit.
A senior Iraqi security official confirmed the news of the deadly air strike to NBC News and is the most significant blow against ISIS since the United States began air strikes last month.
Al Arabiya quoted the Iraqi Defense Ministry to say Baghdadi's aide, an explosives expert and the military leader of the nearby town of Tel Afar also lost their lives in the raid.

Attn: ISIS (bumped)
All ur base are belong to us.
Thanks to @BemetOr8, Beer O'Clock, @meankitteh1, @wvubetasoldier.
We just want the Foley family to know the Jawas are doing what we can. May James RIP.
And it seems the world is finally coming around to our view that Islamic Terror Propaganda is something to be fought actively. We've noticed that providers, especially Google has been more cooperative in removing ISIS propaganda lately. Since Obama has acted in Iraq. Good for them. Not only are they taking down the Foley Murder videos they are erasing all traces from Google's Cache.
But lets get one thing clear, this is NOT President Obama's fault.
Evil people do evil things. ISIS are evil. We must fight evil. Its that simple.
And I also want to thank all those others across the web who are fighting this release.
There's more work to be done on this.
Ha Double D!

Meriam Yahia Ibrahim IS Free!
A Sudanese woman who was spared a death sentence for renouncing Islam has flown to Italy after more than a month in the US embassy in Khartoum.Sudan's version of Islam? How about THE version of Islam?
Meriam Yahia Ibrahim Ishag and her family were met in Rome by Prime Minister Matteo Renzi, who said: "Today is a day of celebration."
There was global condemnation when she was sentenced to hang for apostasy.
Her father is Muslim so according to Sudan's version of Islamic law she is also Muslim and cannot convert.
Anyway thanks to the Italians and we hope to welcome her home soon.

Kurds Ice UK Jihadi
Gotta love those Kurds, tell me again why we didn't just give them the entire Northern No Fly Zone when we had the chance?
A first British jihadist is believed to have been killed fighting in Iraq's civil war, intelligence officials in the east of the country have told The Telegraph.I'm sure he has some stupid Kunya like al-Brittani. Anyone missing?
The man has not been identified but is believed to be British of Arab origin, according to intelligence officials attached to the Peshmerga, the ethnic Kurdish forces who are holding up the advance of the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham across the north and east of Iraq.
He died in heavy fighting for the town of Jalawla on Wednesday, along with dozens of other fighters, Rooz Bahjat, a senior security official said, speaking at a base in the town of Khanaqin 12 miles away.
The Telegraph was shown a photograph of the man's body. He is pale-skinned with blue eyes, but of Mediterranean appearance. He wears a long beard in the style associated with the radical Salafi version of Sunni Islam, without a moustache.
Mr Bahjat said Kurdish fighters, some of whom were themselves brought up in exile in Britain, recognised a British accent among the voices of the foreign fighters who were leading the other side of the battle.

Who Our SpecOps Troops Should Be Deploying For
Making she, her husband, and their children get out of Sudan safely. Not training Shia butchers to kill Sunni butchers.
Ibrahim, 27, refused to renounce her Christian faith in court in May, prompting a judge to sentence her to hang for apostasy. The case became an international cause, with several U.S. lawmakers and the State Department blasting the decision as barbaric. Sudan's national news service SUNA said the Court of Cassation in Khartoum on Monday canceled the death sentence after defense lawyers presented their case, and that the court ordered her release.
C'mon, Obama. You traded five Taliban commanders for one deserting traitor. You could at least atone for making sure she comes to America safe with her husband and kids.
I won't hold my breath, though.
