The Mail on Sunday said that the masked executioner, who has appeared in a series of grisly videos posted online, had been hit while attending a meeting of IS leaders in an Iraqi town close to the Syrian border last week.

According to the paper, he was rushed to hospital after the US-led attack on a bunker in Al Qaim, western Iraq, on Saturday that killed about 10 IS commanders and wounded 40 more.

The Mail reported that it was the same attack that injured elusive IS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, sparking initial rumours that he had been killed.

The Foreign Office issued an official statement saying: “We are aware of reports. We cannot confirm these reports”, the paper said.

Jihadi John”, named due to his British background, is believed to be responsible for the murders of US journalists James Foley and Steven Sotloff and British aid workers David Haines and Allan Henning.

Despite being a foreigner, the masked assassin, who goes by the nom de guerre Jalman Al-Britani, has become a leading figure in the group that swept across Syria and northern Iraq.

The Mail claimed that a nurse who treated some of those wounded in the attack said there was a man named Jalman on her list, referring to him as “the one who slaughtered the journalists”.

The wounded men were then driven to the IS’s Syrian stronghold of Raqa, according to the Mail’s source.

British intelligence officers estimate that there are about 500 home-grown militants fighting for IS in Syria and Iraq, and Prime Minister David Cameron this week announced plans to stop them returning to Britain for two years.
