British Jihadi Who Worked As Morrisons Security Guard 'Kills Himself In ISIS Suicide Bombing'

British Jihadi Who Worked As Morrisons Security Guard 'Kills Himself In ISIS Suicide Bombing'

A British jihadi who once worked at Morrisons as a security guard is thought to have killed himself in a suicide attack after he fled to Syria in 2013.

Omar Hussain - otherwise known as the Supermarket jihadi - is believed to have volunteered himself for the suicide mission because he realised he could not return to Britain.

Security sources passed the intelligence on to the Mail on Sunday who reported that Hussain took part in a 'martyrdom operation' when ISIS was under siege, in a last-ditch battle against Western-backed Kurdish forces.

Hussain flew to Syria in December 2013 after getting on a flight from Gatwick to Turkey leaving his security job in High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire.

Hussain managed to get through the airport despite being known to counter-terrorism police as an extremist who was stopped from fleeing to Syria six months earlier by authorities.

Once he arrived in Syria, he set up blogs in a bid to explain what life was like in the war-torn country. He even wrote that he missed his mum's cooking, fish and chips and Jaffa Cakes.

Hussain, who would now be 32, called for and praised terror attacks that took place in the UK, encouraged ISIS supporters to rob non-Muslims in a bid to fund the terror group and attempted to groom ISIS followers.

During an interview with the BBC back in 2014, he said: "I hate the UK, the only reason why I would intend to return to the UK is when I want to come and plant a bomb somewhere."

Speaking to the BBC online in 2015, Hussain added: "My childhood was good, nothing out of the ordinary," explaining that he then became a 'lost sheep' and started to ask himself 'what am I doing?'.

Hussain described the excitement of making his journey to Syria to do his 'Islamic duty' because, he explains, he was 'leaving the land of immorality and going to a land of jihad', saying: "For any believer that's paradise, man."

According to The Sun, Hussain was one of four British jihadis in Syria to be placed on a UN sanctions list. It is thought he was stripped of his British citizenship and barred from returning to the UK by the Home Office.
