JNS.org – A British man who in 2009 traveled to Gaza with an aid convoy led by far-left British politician George Galloway has been identified as a member of an execution cell that was formerly led by Islamic State’s “Jihadi John.”

“Thirty-two-year-old Alexanda Kotey has been identified by British and American intelligence services as one of four ISIS guards, collectively known as the ‘Beatles,’ who are responsible for beheading 27 hostages,” a joint investigation by BuzzFeed News and the Washington Post revealed. “The guards were given their nickname by hostages because of their British accents.”

Kotey traveled to Gaza in 2009 as part of the Galloway-led “Viva Palestina” convoy, which supposedly carried £1 million ($1.44 million) worth of aid to the Palestinian coastal territory, which is governed by the Hamas terrorist group.

According to the investigation, Kotey — who is half Ghanian and half Greek Cypriot, and converted to Islam after meeting a Muslim girl — had fallen in with the London Boys, a network of extremists in western London that included Mohammed Emwazi, who was known as “Jihadi John.” Emwazi and Kotey also attended the same mosque, London’s Al-Manaar, where investigators believe they were radicalized.

In January, Islamic State confirmed that “Jihadi John” was killed by a November 2015 drone strike in Syria.
