Two more British men are believed to have died while fighting for Isis in Syria.

The Foreign Office are investigating reports that Abu Abdullah al Habashi, 21, and Abu Dharda, 20 were killed during a conflict in the border town of Kobani, which has seen violent fighting between Islamic State militants and Kurdish fighters for several months.

Both men are from London, and been featured in some of the terrorist group’s propaganda videos.

In the below video Abu Abdullah al Habashi can be seen taunting western countries, his British accent clearly audible.

He claims Isis fighters will ‘take the heads’ of any soldiers from western countries.

Kurdish fighters battling Isis jihadists have been receiving help from American lead air strikes.

The two men are thought to have travelled to Syria in December 2013, having travelled to the war zone through turkey.

A spokesperson from the Foreign Office said: ‘It is hard to investigate these claims, as we do not have representation in Syria, however we are aware of reports of the death of two British nationals.’

‘The UK has advised for some time against all travel to Syria, where all UK consular services are suspended,’ they added.
