Syrian Army kills the most famous ISIS executioner in east Aleppo

On Tuesady afternoon, the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham’s (ISIS) most famous executioner – Mohammad Hamdoush – was reportedly killed by the Syrian Arab Army’s “Cheetah Forces” during the fierce battle for the Kuweires Military Airport.

Nicknamed “Kokeeto the Beheader”, Hamdoush was notorious for filming himself executing captured soldiers and civilians in the Deir Hafer Plains of east Aleppo; in fact, he was reportedly filmed executing captured Syrian Arab Army soldiers from the Tabaqa Military Airport in the Al-Raqqa Governorate.

Perhaps, Mohammad Hamdoush’s most famous video was of him decapitating the heads of 5 unarmed civilians he claimed were “regime spies” that were sentenced to death by an ISIS-sponsored “Shari’ah Court.”

According to a report released by ISIS, Mohammad Hamdoush was originally from Morocco; however, he answered the “call for Jihad” in 2014 and reportedly travelled to Syria in order to help kick-start the Caliphate for the self-proclaimed “Caliph”, Sheikh Ibrahim Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi (ISIS’ leader).

While in Syria, Mohammad Hamdoush met a fellow Moroccan woman that he proposed to inside the Al-Raqqa Governorate; oddly enough, they both travelled to Syria for the same reasons and were later married inside the country.

On their wedding night, Mohammad Hamdoush gave his wife a suicide belt as a gift – she later gave birth to a son that is now 8 months old.
