ISIS Confirms Death of 'Jihadi John' in U.S. Airstrike

'Jihadi John' was killed in a U.S. airstrike as he exited a building in Raqqa.

"The car he was in was targeted in a strike by an unmanned drone in the city of ar-Raqqah, destroying the car and killing him instantly," an article on page 23 of the magazine said.

U.S. officials said that they believed Mohammed Emwazi, a British national, was killed in a "flawless" airstrike in November.

"He walked out of a building and got in the car. We struck it right after with zero collateral damage," a counter-terrorism official told ABC News on Nov. 12. "The vehicle was on fire. It was a 100 percent flawless, direct hit."

"Jihadi John" essentially "evaporated" in the explosion, the official said.

A British drone had taken part of the strike, but it was an American drone that fired the fatal missiles, a U.S. Defense official said in November.
