Syria – On Saturday, ISIS released a video showing that Kenji Goto, a Japanese national and a freelance journalist has been beheaded. Photos of Goto’s cold blooded execution appeared on Twitter and other social media sites. Goto’s executioner is believed to be Muhammed Emwazi, aka, “Jihadi John.”
Goto had gone to Syria in the hope to help another Japanese national, Haruna Yukawa from getting executed, but was unsuccessful. Yukawa was beheaded. Goto himself was taken by terrorists.
ISIS killing of both Yukawa, 42, and Goto has now forced Japan to join the international community against the terrorists. Japan did not give in to the $200 million demand to free both hostages. Japan’s Prime Minister Shinzo Abe vowed to bring justice for the Japanese hostages killed by the terrorists.
ISIS terrorists have marked the start of their end by executing neutral nationals from various countries forcing those nations to join the international armed forces, including the U.S. and United Kingdom’s campaign to demise the terrorists.
More bombings are expected against ISIS strongholds in Syria.
