A jihadi from Luton who fled the UK to join ISIS has died in an airstrike, according to reports.
Abu Rahin Aziz, formerly of Hazelbury Crescent, skipped bail to flee the country before being convicted last June for viciously attacking a football fan in London.
After joining ISIS in Syria, Aziz boasted about his escape from the UK in a series of posts on Twitter– stating in one that his British passport was “not worth spitting on”.
Unconfirmed reports from ISIS supporters state that Aziz was killed in an American drone strike on Saturday, near the Syrian city of Raqqa.
Others have posted a blog entry thought to have been written by Aziz, in which he imagines his own death during a gunfight.
It reads: “The lights go out, a rush of pain, the feeling of blood filling your throat.
“The sound of blood guzzling away.
“Blood starts to pour out of you ears, you turn into a state of shock, confusion.
“The battle continues but my battle ends, and my journey to recovery starts.”
Before leaving the country Aziz, who calls himself Abu Abdullah al-Britani, was a credit control operator at cable company NTL.
He is an associate of extremist Anjem Choudhury and was a member of banned group Muslims Against Crusades, which has previously protested in Luton.
In May 2013 Aziz was one of a gang who shouted “f*** the Queen” after battering a football fan to the ground in London.
Aziz later bragged that he stabbed the victim with a pen for “insulting the Prophet Mohammed”.
