This is the second time in the last six months that Kurdish sources announced Mudzaheri’s death.

According to the Kurdish sources, Muhaxheri died of the wounds sustained in clashes with Kurdish defense forces, Albanian language media in Pristina have said.

In late July he posted photos on Facebook showing him holding a Syrian teenager, preparing to decapitate him with a knife, and then holding the severed head in his hands, posing in front of the camera.
In an interview published by the Tirana daily Ditari on August 2, he stated that he “did nothing more than what members of the KLA did during the war (in Kosovo).”
