AN ISIS executioner known as the “Jihadi Giant” has been revealed as a former Londoner.

Mohammed Reza Haque , who is 6ft 6in, is seen in a newly released video beheading a Syrian prisoner with a serrated knife.

And security sources say he has taken over the key executioner role from Jihadi John – fellow Briton Mohamed Emwazi – who was killed by a US drone.

Haque, from east London, once acted as a bodyguard for notorious hate preacher Anjem Choudary and he was filmed in 2011 burning poppies near the Albert Hall on Remembrance Sunday.

In the grisly ISIS propaganda video, shot in the desert, five alleged spies for the anti-Assad New Syria Army are filmed kneeling.

One of the ISIS terrorist delivers a speech before Haque, 36, and four other men grab each victim by their hair and behead them.

The executions are shown in graphic detail and the video ends with Haque and his fellow terrorists standing in front of the victims’ bodies.

Haque was nicknamed Giant by his fellow terrorists after fleeing to Syria in 2014.

Before his departure, he was pictured at a rally brandishing a black flag like the ones displayed by ISIS followers.

Dr Shiraz Maher, an ISIS expert at the department of war studies at King’s College, London, said: “Some people dismissed the radical network that surrounded Anjem Choudary as clownish, dailyrecord reported.

“Yet scores of individuals like Haque from that cluster travelled to Syria from Britain and now pose a very significant security risk.”
