This is the first picture of one of the ISIS terrorists who forced an elderly parish priest to kneel before slitting his throat in a horror attack at a French church.
Adel Kermiche, 19, has been identified by officials as one of the two jihadis behind the sickening killing at the Church of the Gambetta in Normandy this morning.
He and an unnamed accomplice made Father Jacques Hamel, 85, get to his knees before brutally butchering him, says a nun who escaped the attack.
The pair captured the gruesome slaying on a mobile phone, according to Sister Danielle, who was one of several worshippers taken hostage during morning mass.
They then performed a ’sermon’ around the altar in Arabic – as armed cops rushed to the scene and terrified members of the congregation fled for their lives.
The attackers, who were shot dead by police after reportedly running out of the church shouting ’Allahu Akbar’, were both on an anti-terrorist watchlist.
