A BRIT-based ISIS fighter who allegedly beheaded more than 100 people while claiming £10,000 in benefithas reportedly been captured

A BRIT-based ISIS fighter who allegedly beheaded more than 100 people while claiming £10,000 in benefits in Birmingham has reportedly been captured in Syria.

Belgian-born Anouar Haddouchi – dubbed the “executioner of Raqqa” – was arrested with his wife Julie Maes by Kurdish troops, says Het Laatste Nieuws.

The 35-year-old allegedly decapitated more than 100 people for ISIS in Raqqa.

Kurdish troops are said to have captured the couple after the battle for the last ISIS stronghold in Baghouz, eastern Syria.

Het Laatste Nieuws says it’s not known as yet where Haddouchi will be tried – in Syria, Belgium or France.

It’s not been revealed when the pair were nabbed, or when they could go to trial.

The publication points out that “he risks the death penalty in Iraq” if tried there.

Haddouchi was also allegedly involved in financing deadly terror attacks which slaughtered scores of people in Brussels and Paris.

Originally from Brussels, Haddouchi shifted to Birmingham in 2009.

He was based there until four years ago, when he shifted to Syria, where he allegedly took on an executioner’s role for the terror group.

While he was allegedly beheading more than 100 people in the central market square in Raqqa – and was said to have laughed about their brutal deaths – he continued to receive housing benefits into his Brit bank account.

The BBC reports that, according to legal papers, Haddouchi and his wife initially joined ISIS in September 2014.

As the terrorist had been living in Birmingham, he allegedly claimed thousands of pounds in housing and council tax benefits from Birmingham City Council.

After they left Birmingham, their former landlord told the council that the pair were no longer living at his property.

But no one at the authority or the Department for Work and Pensions stopped benefits being paid into their account.

As a result, they were paid almost £10,000 in benefits.

De Morgan says that Haddouchi allegedly received money from a relative every month until October 2015, as there were no international banks in Raqqa for him to use.

The BBC reports that prosecutors believe that the entire £10,000 in benefits “all went to fund ISIS supporters”.

Also, £3,000 was withdrawn from his account in Birmingham by extremist Zakaria Boufassil.

The housing benefits were then handed over to Belgian-Moroccan Mohamed Abrini, also known as the “Man in the Hat” Brussels terror suspect.

Boufassil got three years’ jail for acts aiding terrorism.

Abrini has been formally charged with his alleged involvement in the 2015 Paris terror attacks that killed 130 people. He is also facing charges in Belgium.

Investigators have alleged that Albrini was part of an ISIS cell in Brussels which planned both the suicide bombings in Brussels in 2016, when 32 people were killed, along with the Paris attack.
