Mohammed Ismail, a UK teenager of Iraqi Kurdish extraction, who joined Daesh when he was only 18, was executed by the terror group in 2016 after Daesh suspected him of being a spy, The Sunday Times reported 31 March. This is the first known Daesh execution of a suspected British spy, according to The Sun.
He is believed to have been fighting for Daesh in Syria, where he was injured and subsequently assigned the job of Daesh police officer.
The young man got the terror group's attention after the assassination of Nasser Muthana, a senior Daesh recruiter from the UK's Cardiff. Muthana was killed in a drone strike in Mosul, and it is believed it was Ismail who gave away his location to Western intelligence services.

"They did an interrogation with him," an unnamed member of the Daesh security apparatus told The Sunday Times. "He confessed everything. And then they killed him."
According to the unnamed Daesh member, the interrogation was filmed on video, along with the execution. The way Ismail was executed is undisclosed.
A source close to one of Ismail's friends who joined him in Syria, said Ismail got "radicalized" in just 15 days.
"Three weeks before he joined the jihad, he was nightclubbing in Coventry," the source said, according to The Sun.
Daesh is a terror group outlawed in Russia and a number of other countries.
