British Prime Minister David Cameron said on Friday if the strike against the militant known as "Jihadi John" in Syria was successful it would be a strike at the heart of Islamic State.
Strike against "Jihadi John" hits at heart of Islamic State
"It will demonstrate to those who would do Britain, our people and our allies harm, we have a long reach, we have unwavering determination and we never forget about our citizens."
Cameron, speaking outside his residence in Downing Street, said the U.S. strike against Mohammed Emwazi, a British citizen, was a combined effort between Britain and the United States and it was "an act of self-defence. It was the right thing to do".
"If this strike was successful -- and we still await confirmation of that -- it will be a strike at the heart of ISIL (Islamic State)," he said.
