Information reaching our news desk over the weekend say the feared elite British Special Air Services (SAS) and their American counterparts Delta Force have been tasked with the hunting down of a British man said to be the one who has now beheaded two American journalists and a British aid worker.
Sources say the two Special Forces units have been given two weeks to find the whereabouts of the man said to have been born in London but of Egyptian parentage whose latest victim was British aid worker David Haines whose beheading was revealed in a video over the weekend.
British Prime Minister David Cameron laid out a plan on Sunday to support American military action against the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) saying in a television broadcast Sunday that the United Kingdom will not rest until the killers of Haines is captured and brought to justice. According to sources close to British security services, the SAS is already on the trail of killer and so are the American special services. Both Special Forces are famous for carrying out unbelievable acts of bravery and courage, latest of which was the finding and killing of Osama bin Laden the Saudi Arabian businessman who turned himself into the world’s most sought after terrorist after masterminding the 9/11 outrage in the United States.
The outrage caused by these beheadings has led several Arab countries to offer to carry out airstrikes against militants from the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, senior State Department officials said Sunday. The offer was disclosed by American officials travelling with Secretary of State John Kerry, who is approaching the end of a weeklong trip that was intended to mobilize international support for the campaign against ISIS.
“There have been offers both to Centcom and to the Iraqis of Arab countries taking more aggressive kinetic action,” said one of the officials, who used the acronym for the United States Central Command, which oversees military operations in the Middle East. Mr Kerry, who is in Paris to attend an international conference the French are hosting on Monday on providing aid to the new Iraqi government, has already visited Baghdad; Amman, Jordan; Jidda, Saudi Arabia; Ankara, Turkey; and Cairo.
