American couple recruiting for ISIS in Syria killed in airstrike

An American husband and wife team who traveled to Syria to join ISIS and recruit Westerns have been killed in an airstrike, according to jihadi social media accounts. The bodies of Abu Isa al-Amriki and Umm Isa al-Amriki, as they were referred to, were discovered in the rubble of their home in Aleppo province Friday. The couple actively recruited and communicated with potential recruits, answering questions and guiding others traveling from the West to join ISIS. The Foreign Desk previously reported on the wife’s activities, focusing on mentoring only young women, writing on her social media account, “My account is for sisters only, so unless you menstruate do not message me.” Her husband would focus on advising young men. They two were also involved in raising money for the jihadi group. One Telegram channel posted about their deaths: “I confirmed it that brother Abu Isa Al Amriki and his wife Umm Isa Al Amrikiah were hit in their house by the airstrikes and they both attained shahadah (martyrdom) few days ago.” “May Allah grant both of them shahada .... and make them enter Jannatul firdous (heaven.)”
