A British citizen sympathizing with Islamic State militants has published the home address of the Navy SEAL who killed Osama Bin Laden and called on Islamic extremists in the U.S. to execute him. 

The unnamed British jihadist called on “brothers in America” to kill Robert O’Neill, the man who fatally shot the al-Qaeda leader during the SEAL team 6 raid in Pakistan in May 2011. 

A file containing instructions on how to find Mr. O’Neill has been shared by several jihadists via social media, the U.K. Mirror reported

“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 Islamic State supporter wrote, the Mirror reported

The jihadist also blasted Mr. O’Neill for “traveling around America, putting on seminars and boasting about killing Sheik Osama.” 

Social media firms and the website where the post was originally published have attempted to censor Mr. O’Neill’s address. 

The jihadist also posted a link to a story in the International Business Times in which Mr O’Neill’s father said the family were “not afraid of ISIS.”

Mr. O’Neill claimed he killed bin Laden last year in a documentary called “The Man Who Killed Osama Bin Laden.” 

The 39-year-old faced huge backlash from former colleagues for revealing details about the mission.
