An ISIS militant who appeared in a video beheading a foreigner in 2016 has been killed in a battle with U.S.-backed forces in Syria.

Indonesian citizen Muhammad Saifuddin, who used the aliases Abu Walid and Mohammed Karim Yusop Faiz, was confirmed dead by national police and a family member yesterday.

He was killed on January 29 in eastern Deir Ezzor province where an international coalition is trying to defeat remaining pockets of ISIS extremists. 

Indonesian National police spokesman Dedi Prasetyo said Saifuddin was killed by shrapnel from a Syrian forces tank in the battle.
