A senior British jihadi who boasted of recruiting hundreds of Britons for Isis has reportedly been killed in Syria, The Independent reported.

Raphael Hostey, also known as Abu Qaqa al Britani, left Manchester to join Isis in 2013.

The 23-year-old became a key recruiter of British fighters and jihadi brides for the terror group and was also heavily involved in its propaganda.

Amarnath Amarasingam, a post-doctoral researcher at Dalhousie University in Halifax, Nova Scotia, told The Independent he had been informed of the death by several fighters in the region.

Amarasingam said he understood he was killed in a drone strike, adding that he was trying to confirm the death of at least three other British jihadis.

Hostey was heavily involved in Isis propaganda and is believed to have been instrumental in attracting Britons to Syria.

Shiraz Maher, a war studies lecturer from King's College London, said the death of the British jihadi was "huge".

He said Hostey was the last survivor of a hugely important group of Isis fighters from Manchester and Portsmouth who were responsible for the flow of Britons to Isis.

Hostey was also heavily involved in Isis propaganda, he added, and probably helped produce the group's recruitment magazine Dabiq.
