Kerry warns ISIL 'days numbered'

World Bulletin / News Desk

US Secretary of State John Kerry on Friday warned the ISIL group its "days are numbered", following an American strike in Syria targeting British militant "Jihadi John".

"The coalition forces conducted an air strike targeting...Jihadi John," whose real name is Mohammed Emwazi, he said on a visit to Tunis.

"We are still assessing the results of this strike but the terrorists associated with ISIL need to know this: Your days are numbered and you will defeated," said Kerry.

"There is no future, no path forward" for ISIL, the secretary of state said.

The Pentagon said the US military conducted an air strike Thursday targeting Emwazi, the masked ISIL militant with a British accent seen in grisly videos executing Western hostages.

"We are assessing the results... and will provide additional information as and where appropriate," said spokesman Peter Cook.

The Pentagon said the air strike took place in Raqa, the ISIL's de facto Syrian capital.

CNN and the Washington Post, citing officials, reported that Emwazi was targeted by a drone.
