In ISIS news, Navy SEAL Rob O’Neill, who killed Osama bin Laden, was targeted on social media by Islamic State supporters. A British ISIS recruiter published the name and address of the Navy SEAL and called on American extremists to execute him.
Navy SEAL Rob O’Neill’s personal information and the threat against his life was first shared on social media by a British extremist claiming to be “Mrs Terror” Sally Jones, who dubbed O’Neill a “number one target” and called for his immediate death.
“I leave this info of Robert O’Neill for my brothers in America and Al Qaeda in the U.S, as a number one target to eventually hunt down and kill,” the ISIS supporter wrote.
How did O’Neil respond? He told Fox News, “I’ve been ready for this since we killed Usama bin Laden. I know how to defend myself.”

Navy SEAL’s Father: “Not Afraid of ISIS”
The publication of O’Neill’s address on social media by ISIS supporters was accompanied by a link to a story in the International Business Times in which O’Neill’s father, Tom O’Neill, said he was not concerned that O’Neill going public about his role in the death of bin Laden could put the family in danger.
“People are asking if we are worried that Isis will come and get us because Rob is going public,” his father said referring to the Islamic State group, which broke away from al-Qaeda earlier this year.
“I say I’ll paint a big target on my front door and say come and get us,” he said. “My ex-wife gave birth to a man. We shouldn’t be cowering in fear.”
Along with the interview by O’Neil’s father, the British ISIS recruiter said the terrorist group was targeting the former Navy SEAL because Rob O’Neil was “traveling around America putting on seminars boasting about killing Sheikh Osama”.
“This is what he gets for not shutting his mouth about the operation,” the ISIS supporter told Mirror Online. “There is more to come.”
