KUALA LUMPUR: Police have confirmed that Malaysian Islamic State (IS) militant Muhammad Wanndy Mohamed Jedi was killed in Syria.
“After reviewing intelligence, we can confirm that Wanndy have been killed in an attack in Raqqa, Syria on April 29,” Inspector General of Police Tan Sri Khalid Abu Bakar said via his @KBAB51 Twitter handle on Monday.
It was previously reported that news of Muhammad Wanndy’s alleged death was triggered by a Facebook post by his wife Nor Mahmudah Ahmad, 28.
She said Muhammad Wanndy could have been killed in Syria in a drone strike.
Stating that she accepted her husband’s fate, Nor Mahmudah vowed to carry on with his struggle in Syria.
“My Mujahid, finally it is your time to go. I will remain here and carry on with the work you started. I accept this as fate,” Nor Mahmudah wrote in her latest posting.- Star
