American couple recruiting for ISIS killed in Syrian airstrike. Abu Isa alAmriki and Umm Isa alAmriki left America to work as ISIS recruiters. They targeted young, Western men and women and raised money for ISIS. The couple was killed in an airstrike last week. Jihadi social media accounts confirmed their deaths. “They both attained shahada [martyrdom] a few days ago.” In 2015, over 250 Americans were reported to have joined ISIS. Authorities have not confirmed how many have done so since.
