Another Danish jihadist reported dead

The national intelligence agency PET would not confirm or deny the reports

Yet another jihadist hailing from Denmark has been killed during a suicide bombing in the Middle East, according to the Long War Journal website.

The man, who went by the name Abu Sa'ad al Denmarki, died after he allegedly drove a car packed with explosives into a military convoy near the city of Mosul in northern Iraq.

The man was part of the Ninewa Division of the Islamist terror group, the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, which took credit for the bombing in a press release, stating that the Dane was among six fallen fighters. The other five came from Saudi Arabia, France and Morocco.

The Ninewa area in northern Iraq is one of the terror group’s 16 operational districts. It is close to the border with Syria and is considered to be one of the most unstable regions in Iraq.

The national intelligence agency PET would not confirm or deny these reports. But it revealed in January this year that 90 Danes had left Denmark to take part in the ongoing war in Syria.

A recent report from the International Centre for the Study of Radicalisation in Britain showed that Denmark is second in Europe when it comes to the number of people per capita who have travelled to fight in Syria, only surpassed by Belgium.
