Corrected: ISIS Claims Female American Aid Worker Killed In Jordanian Strike
ISIS claims an American female aid worker they were holding hostage, now identified as Kayla Mueller, died because of Jordan avenging the terrorist group’s immolation of a Jordanian pilot.
An Islamic State message published by the SITE Intelligence Group, which tracks jihadist activity, said the American woman was killed when the building where she was being held in the Raqqa area collapsed in an airstrike.
“The failed Jordanian aircraft killed an American female hostage,” said the message. “No mujahid was injured in the bombardment, and all praise is due to Allah.” Mujahid means fighter.
The woman, the only remaining American hostage held by the Islamic State, disappeared inAugust of last year after she drove into Aleppo with her Syrian boyfriend. Her colleagues received a proof-of-life video a few months later, showing her wearing a hijab and begging for her life.
